LazyLawn has rolled out 1,000 square metres of its artificial grass to create a low maintenance Woodland Wheelers track for young people that can be used whatever the weather.

Showcase Greens, LazyLawn licensee and golf course specialists, won the contract after refurbishing adventure golf courses at other Center Parcs locations.

Center Parcs group outdoor activity and safety manager Steve Cooper said: "We're really excited about this new activity as it takes what is already a very popular activity for older children and adult guests to a younger guest age group. We offer activities for all ages so there's plenty for families to choose from whilst with us and Woodland Wheelers is a great addition to our offering."

David Lowe, of Showcase Greens, comments: "We have established a good relationship with Center Parcs, after installing artificial golf greens for their adventure golf courses at villages in the UK."

He added: "The track was created using a combination of turfs, including Grass Park Junior in traditional green and our black Funky Colours grass, which was used for the track itself. We recommended these durable, hard wearing turfs as they benefit from a dense, low pile and are therefore ideal for high traffic areas.

"The installation took seven days to complete due to the complexities of the project, as the curves of the track were hand cut onsite before being installed. We are very pleased with the result, which will provide Center Parcs with grass that will look vibrant and clean all year round, and will do away with the dry or muddy patches that would be created on natural grass due to the area's high footfall."

LazyLawn is now due to install another track at Center Parcs Longleat Forest in Wiltshire. Lowe said the company is now installing around 35 golf greens every year and expects demand to grow.
