Playground Case Study

Golden Path Academy - Stephenson, VA

Golden Path Academy in Virginia is an education center for infants, preschoolers, and elementary-aged kids. The school originally began with one campus in Sterling, VA, but recently expanded to a second location in Stephenson, VA. With the growth and expansion, Golden Path decided to take the opportunity to be very intentional while building the playground at their new site.

The Challenge

Their main goal was clear. Everyone who was involved in the designing and building of Golden Path Academy’s new playground regarded safety as the top priority. All decisions about the creation of the facility would be made in accordance with the safety of their precious students ranging in age from one to ten years old, including decisions regarding the facility’s turf system.

The Solution

For the turf system installation company SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay, recommending Envirofill to the folks at Golden Path Academy was a no brainer. It’s their go-to turf infill for clients who seek an artificial turf system that offers the highest performance and safest playground surface around. Envirofill’s built-in safety features fight bacteria on the surface and create a safe foundation for horsing around. USGreentech’s products are reliably safe, nontoxic, and hygienic, so they’re perfect for worry-free play

We recommended Envirofill to Golden Path Academy because they wanted the safest product in the market for a children's playground

The Results

Protection against injury

 A shock pad was installed underneath the artificial turf and serves as a guard against injury, since playground time invariably includes tumbles, falls, and rough play. Learn more about the importance of shock pads.


Because Envirofill is infused with a cutting-edge antimicrobial agent called Microban, the play area’s surface at Golden Path Academy does not have lingering germs or bacteria. The stains and unpleasant smells associated with bacterial growth in turf systems is a nonissue, too, so kids stay safe and clean.


Envirofill is made from 100% traceable materials that are toxin-free. Made from environmentally-friendly materials, it’s the turf infill chosen at homes and schools where kids are known to live and play.
