    Como Lake Playground

    como-lake-fish-3

     

    Marathon received a design request from the City of Coquitlam for fish to be incorporated into their Como Lake playground.  That design request resulted in unique three dimensional rubber fish with animated expressions cresting the blue pour in place rubber surfacing. These design oriented mounds add a third dimension to the playground surface.

    Introducing: Street Unit Skateboard Ramps

    skateboard ramp 2 skateboard ramp 1Nowhere for the skateboarders to go?

    We have the solution. Marathon would like to introduce to Canada  Street Unit skateboard ramps.  Our skateboard units are affordable and moveable, which means that you have the flexibility to change where your skateboarders hang out. Sold individually, these elements can be used separately or combined to create versatile street skateboard environments. These skateboard ramps are perfect for school yards, parking lots, off-season ice rinks as well as a great addition to existing skateboard parks. Made from high-quality steel,  units are all-weather and extremely durable.

    Designed in Finland by professional skateboarders and architects, these elements have an avant-garde, minimalist appearance. Each ramp name is inspired by a skateboarding trick the designer thought would be fun to do on the element.

    Foster Park – Parksville

    Tucked away in a quiet family neighbourhood in Parksville is Foster Park, now home to an extensively renovated playground. Pea gravel was replaced with pour in place recycled rubber safety surfacing in waves of blue, green and grey.  Desired design elements were enhanced through the creativity of the Marathon Surfaces design team and talented installers, who were able to add an intricate and vibrant dragon hopscotch to the surfacing. Community fundraising, private and corporate donations, and a grant from the Tire Stewardship of BC all made this project possible.

    New life has been given to Lions Park in Port Coquitlam. Previously enjoyed and loved by the community as a unique tire park, residents of the area were hoping that the tires would remain as a play element in the revitalized park. Van Der Zalm and Associates repurposed the tires in their unique design as planters, and climbing features that resemble the back of a dragon. Marathon Surfaces installed Landsafe pour in place recycled rubber safety surfacing on a hillside, and high traffic safety zones as well as meandering pathways around the playground.   Areas surfaced in rubber were bordered by grass, sand and wood fibre to create natural elements in the play space.

    Queenston Park Ariel View

    Queenston Park located in Coquitlam had some unique challenges in designing their playground.  An existing hillside bordered the area limiting the available dimensions.  The City of Coquitlam and design team decided to use the hill to their advantage by incorporating it into the play space.  Marathon Surfaces installed Landsafe  pour in place recycled rubber safety surfacing on the hillside, and created rubber handholds and hillside steps to provide a fun way for kids to climb the hill, as well as easy access for parents. Large red Circles were added for interest and small beige circles were included to provide opportunities for jumping games and add play value to the surfacing. Habitat Systems installed a hillside net structure, climbing cable and bridge to add further enjoyment to this playground.Queenston 22 Queenston 25
