Porous Pave Amos Herr Dream Park
Products Utilized: Porous Pave XLS Play Ground Surfacing with 2 inch and 3 inch Safety Shock Pad plus a Porous Pave XL Walkway.— Jim Dowd, Aquarius Supply
The Amos Herr Playground was visualized, planned, and erected within this close knit community in Lancaster County, PA. Funds were raised by the community at large as well as a $175,000 grant from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The talents of Lee Archin from Play by Designs were enlisted to help the project come to life and replace the old playground to current safety specifications and utilize the best materials available for active play and longevity. Lee and his staff also acted onsite as project managers alongside the community volunteers which numbered above 100 neighbors and Ben Craddock, the engineer for the project and township resident. One of the challenges due to the proximity of Lancaster County, PA to the Chesapeake Bay was managing stormwater runoff. Aquarius Supply's Jim Dowd was involved in the project early on as the Porous Pave distributor and came to township meetings and kept on top of things as the project was installed.
