Henrico County, VA (PRWEB) October 03, 2017 -- Greenwood Park, scheduled for completion in February, will feature a new 10 acre Greenplay® CorkonutTM organic infill artificial turf sports field complex with four full size fields designed to blend with the beauty of the natural environment, positioned at the center of the pristine 88 acre park.
“This is our biggest land development project in the 15 years I’ve been here,” exclaims project manager Steve Hart.
“Soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, rugby, football, you name it, if it’s a field sport you can play it out here,” explains Neil Luther, the county’s Director of Henrico Recreation & Parks.
The decision to utilize the natural, plant-based organic infill was made early on in the design process to keep the facility as natural as possible and avoid the many questions that have arisen over the use of traditional crumb tire rubber infill. This heightened awareness for health and safety is convincing many facilities across the country to take a hard look at Greenplay® with many communities passing resolutions to utilize only plant-based organic infill for all future turf fields, such as that passed in 2015 by Montgomery County in neighboring Maryland.
The comparisons to pristine natural grass are abundant, not just aesthetically, but more importantly a result of the natural feel of the turf, enhanced foot stability and very low abrasion. Even on the hottest days of the summer, the turf will be cool enough to be played on barefoot, a direct result of the superior inherent moisture retention and the natural evaporative effect of the organic infill.
The new synthetic turf perfectly integrates with the natural coconut fiber and cork matrix of the organic infill to further reduce migration and maintain consistent infill levels to better coincide with the intensity of play.
“We are extremely proud to be part of this new Henrico County Park complex,” states Domenic Carapella, founder of Greenplay® Organics. “Greenplay® is now part of over fifty school, municipal and university fields and will be installed in the three new Henrico County High Schools that will be completed early next year!”
