Burke Turf

Burke Turf® combines rugged durability with remarkable softness and beauty that allows it to be used in both sports and playground areas! With the look and feel of fine blade fescue or blue grass lawn, it is a perfect complement to any playground area and helps keep children of all abilities moving! Below the playground surface you’ll find a soft infill that is completely anti-microbial, to provide a lasting, healthy play environment. A shock and drainage pad provides shock absorption and impact protection from falls – the most common source of serious playground injuries. Burke Turf conforms to the latest CPSC, ASTM, and ADAAG standards for impact attenuation and accessibility. Learn More
