Price River Trail Gets New Shaded Outdoor Exercise Equipment

The Price River Trail, a riverside walking trail and scenic attraction in Price, Utah, received an amazing upgrade.  Now, when you park at the beginning of the trail at 600 South Carbon Avenue, you can start your trek with a warm-up workout.

Outdoor Exercise Equipment by Playcraft Systems

The new outdoor exercise equipment was provided and installed by LuckyDog Recreation and custom manufactured by Playcraft Systems. This model of “ExerCraft” by Playcraft includes two fitness towers with 3-positions fitness stations on each tower; the equipment that includes a chest press, crunch station, cross trainer, leg press and more.

Shade Structures by Custom Canopies

The shade shelter for this project was manufactured by Custom Canopies, and is a cinch to put up in the spring and take down in late fall. Russell Seeley, City Engineer says that price doesn’t get much snow, so the snow load on the custom shade structure is not an issue. However, in winter months they do get a lot of wind. So the fabric shade is stored during the winter months. As part of the bid package, the city did purchase a 2nd fabric shade for future use.
Customers that remove their fabric shade during the off-season have been using the same fabric shade for 10 plus years without having to replace it. It’s tough stuff! a lot of folks think that the Utah and Idaho climate is too harsh for fabric shades, but I always tell them, “Think about Florida they get hurricane winds! and they use fabric shades on all their playgrounds.”

Contractor Required to Have Bonding, Permits, Inspections

The Price River Trail parking lot improvements were a public works project requiring the awarded contractor to be bonded. City building permits and inspections were also required. Because LuckyDog Recreation is a full-service company, projects of this size and scope are done turn-key allowing the owners flexibility and added assurance that the project will be done right from concept to completion.

pour-in-place surfacing Price River UtahSpecial Construction Considerations

Because the construction of the project is near the river, special consideration was made for a high water table. The equipment was mounted on a concrete pad on which the pour-in-place surfacing was laid. The footers for the shade structure are spread footers allowing more ground surface to bear on.

Pour-In-Place Surfacing

The pour-in-place surfacing is a 50/50 mix of tan (all new material) and black (recycled material). Mixing the black recycled material with any color makes it more cost effective. Much like carpet for your home, adding a sprinkle of dark color can hide a lot of spills.

Placing fall resilient surfacing under exercise equipment is not a requirement, however, the City of Price wanted the added user-comfort and the attractive look that the seamless, slip resistant surface brings to the aesthetics of the site.

Azure Meadows Park Shelter in Taylorsville Utah

It’s always a good feeling when a project is complete. This past week marks the completion of the park shelter at Azure Meadows Park in Taylorsville, Utah.

The PlayCraft Systems™ playground and Coverworx park shelter was purchased by the Tailorsville community as a package deal. However, the playground was finished over a month ago, so it’s nice to put the finishing touch on the park shelter and have the port-a-potty on it’s way to the next job site, which also happens to be a park shelter job…that’s another story.

This two-tier picnic shelter is All-Steel with Tongue and Groove Decking underneath, a lovely addition to an already good-looking shelter! And talk about a great addition to the neighborhood.

I can’t say enough about the two-tiered look and how it makes the entire shelter look larger than it really it. It’s about 16′ X 24′ and the concrete pad extends about three feet in each direction. The pad also goes directly into the playground pit but doesn’t allow wood surfacing to migrate up onto the concrete pad.

There is still a bit of site-work to do; a sidewalk from the perimeter to the shelter and a bike path around the back of the whole park. But starting today. the community of Azure Meadows in Taylorsville, Utah can start using their park shelter as an accompanying amenity to the awesome Playcraft playground.
