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.
