No Fault Project Spotlight: Elm St. Park Project, Greenville, North Carolina

Go to Blog

No Fault was delighted to partner with Site Concepts to provide and install our No Fault Safety Surface for Elm St. Park in Greenville, North Carolina.  Elm St. Park opened on May 23,1951 as the City of Greenville’s Little League baseball field.  Then in 2007, David Vaughn, father of Sarah Vaughn, organized funding and managed the construction of the Sarah Vaughn Field of Dreams project.  Sarah was a child with special needs, and this project was built in her honor.

This project included accessible baseball fields and a new, all-inclusive playground called CommonGround.  

The original playground was completed in the Spring of 2008.  Parents and supporters all had input in the design.  Lisa Jordan, a local artist and a parent of a special needs child, painted the sidewalks that shared the design elements in the playground and the surfacing.  The play area includes leaves, bugs, sand and other nature elements, and the rubber safety surfacing was a nature spin of colors and swirl patterns.  

No Fault was recently invited to replace the old rubber surfacing with our No Fault Safety Surface.   Our partnership with Site Concepts produced a fun and colorful play area with an eye-catching “swirl” pattern – just like the original surfacing design back in 2008.  Since both Site Concepts and No Fault Surfaces are awarded vendors of Sourcewell (formerly NJPA), we were able to provide the City of Greenville with discounted pricing.

Mike Watson, Parks Coordinator for the Greenville Recreation & Parks Department, stated, “I am very pleased with the outcome.  The pattern and colors match the old one perfectly.  The work was done in a timely manner, and I would have no issues working with No Fault for any future projects.
