Silverthorne Town Pavilion
A small park of open space was created by Highway 9 border on the west and the pathway close to the Blue Fork River on the east. A natural wilderness setting is apparent on the river side of the path with a groomed lawn for recreation on the other. Gravelpave2 provides an attractive connection between the two different areas. The gravel reinforced surface is excellent for walking, while providing great stability for bicycles and strollers as well. Gravelpave2 is approved for handicapped access (see testing section on the web). This was a relatively flat site. When designing with sloping pathways in mind, be sure to specify and order Gravelpave2 with crossbars to prevent stormwater from creating rill erosion between the rings. Crossbars connect rings together in the weft, not the warp, direction of the mats and should be installed perpendicular to the slope.

Gravelpave2 marries well with wild flowers, trees, and the vegetation near the Blue Fork River to the right, because it maintains a natural setting with small stone fill material and low maintenance .

Gravelpave2 can be shaped easily into a curved line path by slightly stretching one edge. Pie-shaped pieces can be cut out of an inside curve to increase the arc.
Point where the pathway intersects with the Highway 9 (behind the camera). The path doesn’t parallel the noisy highway, but redirects people along the river to the Community Center in the distance.
