Merri Creek School

TigerPlay was selected by the architects as the best playground surface for Merri Creek School. The TigerPlay multi-court at Merri Creek Primary School is durable, low maintenance, with minimal infill – but the students, they love their bright, inviting court because it’s much more fun to play on, and it’s going to be that way every day.

Playground helps inspire creative play

Playground helps inspire creative play

Merri Creek Primary School needed a durable, low maintenance surface for structured learning, such as PE classes, and for general recreational activities and playtimes. And of course, was keen to have clear markings and soft textures the students would love and to inspire creative play.

TigerTurf worked closely with Architects

TigerTurf was engaged by the architects managing the redevelopment at Merri Creek Primary School in Fitzroy to assist with the design of a playscape for the school, advise on the best playground surface for the project and install the new synthetic turf.Taking time to listen, and to select the right surface for the right purpose provides the best value for school investments. With the experience of years of enjoyment in planning and installing playgrounds for primary schools, we have a clear understanding of the qualities to be considered.

TigerPlay synthetic playground surface is bright, soft and less abrasive than other products

TigerPlay was selected by the architects as being the best playground surface for Merri Creek. It was designed for the purpose, and, not surprisingly, is the most popular playground turf for schools.

TigerPlay is a low pile, dense surface with minimal sand infill, qualities that make it the favourite surface for schools, but there is more to TigerPlay than that. Produced with all levels of education in mind, it offers them even more desirable qualities: safe for play in all weather, fast-drying, hard wearing, softer, less abrasive than many traditional sand-filled synthetic turf surfaces – the ideal playground surface for primary schools.

TigerPlay comes with a generous palette of vibrant colours, creating appealing designs for sports and games to attract and inspire student play. As well as being less abrasive, the minimal sand infill does make this a clean playground surface, with little, if any sand, carried indoors on student footwear or clothing.
