St. Louis-based Accella Polyurethane Systems, has donated its Tru-Motion™ product to develop the new Trojan Park Playground, located in Wellston, MO. The former vacant lot is undergoing a complete transformation into a state-of-the-art playground, using an all pour-in-place safety binder thanks to the efforts of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), Great Rivers Greenway, and their contributors. Accella’s Tru-Motion products provide an eco-friendly, highly durable, visually appealing ground surface that covers the entire span of the playground’s flooring.
Installers were able to cover the 1-acre-sized park with the rubberized material. All parties involved with the construction of Trojan Park are eagerly awaiting its unveiling and opening celebration on Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 10 a.m.
Through the Parks Build Community initiative, the NRPA selects a location to restore a park in the host city of its annual conference. This year, the NRPA decided to take on a new challenge – creating a park from scratch for the first time. The NRPA’s 2016 convention is being held in St. Louis, and the suburb of Wellston was chosen as a prime location to create a revitalized gathering place for youth, families, and adults.
