Walker Johnston Park, Urbandale, IA, Play Solution

Walker Johnston Park, Urbandale, IA

The Urbandale Parks department wanted to add to the play footprint of the Walker Johnston park by creating a route to make it easy and fun to get from the bottom of the slide back to the top.

The solution ABcreative consultant Larry Rife recommended was a climbing net parallel to the slide plus Playground Grass Ultra because the steepness of the hill created issues with the natural grass beside the slide - the traffic up and down made maintaining it difficult.

ForeverLawn Des Moines installed Playground Grass Ultra, which offers:

  • Beautiful green grass that is safe for kids to play on and soft to fall on.

  • Long-lasting with minimal maintenance.

  • Attractive appearance.

Adding Playground Grass to the hill created additional play value for the park because kids can roll on it, sit on it, roll down, slide down, and run up and down it, laughing and enjoying their time at the park.

As soon as this area opened, kids swarmed to this part of the park. The Urbandale Parks & Recreation department feel that this has been a "win" and is very happy with what it adds to the park.

Playground Grass Ultra

This turf uses lightly textured polyethylene blades with a textured nylon thatch zone to create a full, dense and safe product. The fullness comes from the construction and the additional safety is a result of the AlphaSan® antimicrobial and XStatic anti-static technology that is manufactured into the blades.
