Project Profile:

Wydown Parkway Jogging Path

Project Summary

Wydown Parkway has a grassy center median that runs the length of the parkway. For years it has been popular jogging area for local residents. Due constant use of the median a path had been worn where the joggers would run. The City of Clayton wanted to do something to the path so that grass would grow and survive the regular use the path would receive from joggers. It was decided to install a section of Grasspave2 in combination with irrigation. A section was installed in 2008. The project was successful and the City decided to continue to replace the path with the Grasspave2 and irrigation system along the entire parkway. An additional 6,990 sf. of Grasspave2 was installed in 2009 and in 2010 an additional 13,330 sf. is scheduled to be installed. The City was happy with the ease of installation and the results. The width of the trail was designed to be the width of the rolls making installation with the 1020 Grasspave2 rolls very simple.
