SOLUTION:
Classic Recreation Systems Inc. teamed up with landscape architects to create this custom Mesa Train Station structure, located in All Abilities Park, St. George, Utah. It is a great place for families to enjoy the outdoors while riding a historic model steam train.

PROBLEM:
Too many buyers are installing playground surfaces without knowing if the installed surface complies with basic safety standards.

SOLUTION:
If your surface hasn't been tested on-site, neither laboratory testing nor IPEMA certification can demonstrate safety compliance. SofSurfaces has partnered with its network of qualified distributors to offer free on-site safety testing of all its installed surfaces. Know what you're getting before you pay for it.

PROBLEM:
We need an elevated vantage point for events.

Shelters with a View by ICON Shelter Systems take outdoor shade structures to a new level, literally. Shelters with stairs to a second level give event attendees a vantage point from which to participate in the activities. These can be fitted with a wheelchair lift for ADA accessibility.

PROBLEM:
Budgets are tight.

SOLUTION:
Disc golf courses are inexpensive to install and benefit the community. Low-impact exercise for all ages enhances your park offerings, and the players take an active role in taking care of the course and the surrounding areas. Adding a disc golf course is an environmentally friendly, positive investment. Maintenance costs are minimal. There is no clear-cutting of trees, grading of land, costly fertilizer or mowing maintenance necessary.

PROBLEM:
Low alkalinity in pool and incoming fill water leads to difficulty controlling pH.

SOLUTION:
This is a good time to use CO2 as it helps lower pH but increases your total alkalinity. The most common use of CO2 is in a small spa with bromine as the primary sanitizer because with a small body of water on bromine, your pH may rise and your alkalinity will diminish. CO2 will help to increase your total alkalinity while bringing down your pH.
