Hockaday Community Playground Hill Side

Hockaday Community Playground Hill Side

The City of Coquitlam faced some challenges while planning Hockaday community playground. They were looking for options to surface over existing hill side boulders that were too large to remove but presented a safety hazard if they were to remain.  Marathon Surfaces surfaced the hillside, along with the boulders, in Landsafe pour in place recycled rubber safety surfacing. This created a slip resistant seamless surface that would be safe for the kids to explore.  Marathon also installed steps to the hillside to be used not only as a climbing feature but to allow parents easy access their children at the top of the hill and slide. The City decided to incorporate wood fibre into the playground to provide needed cost savings.  This project was a recipient of the Tire Stewardship Community Grant Program.
