Artificial Grass for Recreation and Parks

It is no secret; the residents of the San Francisco Bay Area enjoy active lifestyles. There are plenty of parks and recreational areas for any sport activity. In a state that is in one of the worst droughts in many years, artificial grass for recreation has been the choice for many cities. County officials have found this product to be an eco-friendly and cost-effective approach to landscape design.

The 2010 Clean & Safe Parks Bond gave money to SF to fix parks and recreation areas. They used these funds to convert real grass into artificial grass for recreation. For example, artificial turf is used instead of mulch in Golden Gate Park’s off-leash dog parks. Using fake pet grass keeps the area in shape and reduces water and labor costs.  San Francisco also replaced the soccer fields in Golden Gate Park with artificial grass for recreation. Sports organizers and teams were concerned about the muddy unsafe conditions from the real grass. Premier suppliers like Watersavers can help cities like SF choose the proper sports turf and padding to make parks a safer place to play.
