Emerging Recreation Market
It’s becoming increasingly apparent that recreation facilities are noticing the value of installing synthetic turf. Blue Ash Recreation Center, Anderson Township Park District’s Riverside Park, Wyoming Recreation Center, Elizabethtown Sports Park are just a few of the many recreation / multi use fields that The Motz Group has recently installed. “Our new All Weather Field facility at Riverside Park has enabled the ATPD to continue our mission of providing quality fields for our residents” says Ken Kushner, executive director of Anderson Township Park District. Among other assets, synthetic turf allows recreation facilities to maximize rental dollars since weather related field conditions are no longer a factor.
