You and your little ones may call them "woodchips," but the chunks of wood inside our playground containers are actually a specially designed safety product called engineered wood fiber. Engineered wood fiber provides superior fall attenuation, is attractive and efficient to install. However, periodically all engineered wood fiber surfaces do require a topping off due to compaction and spillage. Every year Roseville Parks and Recreation utilizes a rotating schedule and manual inspections to identify playgrounds in need of more engineered wood fiber.
In 2020, the following parks will receive additional engineered wood fiber:
- Materian Park
- Central Park Lexington (Curley)
- Bruce Russell
- Langton Lake South
- Lower villa
