Playground Safety Surface

You and your little ones may call them "woodchips," but the chunks of wood inside our playground containers are actually a specially designed safety product called engineered wood fiber. Engineered wood fiber provides superior fall attenuation, is attractive and efficient to install.  However, periodically all engineered wood fiber surfaces do require a topping off due to compaction and spillage. Every year Roseville Parks and Recreation utilizes a rotating schedule and manual inspections to identify playgrounds in need of more engineered wood fiber. 

In 2019, the following parks will receive additional engineered wood fiber: 

  • Applewood
  • Materion
  • Howard Johnson
  • Langton Lake North
  • Central Park (Dale Street)
  • Sandcastle
  • Acorn
  • Central Park (Foundation)
