to be used for the purchase and installation of crumb rubber at the Skyview Park playground.
Skyview Park is home to Jeffersontown Youth Baseball, Softball and Football, and host a variety of regional ball tournaments throughout the season. The park also includes a segment of the Gaslight Recreational Workplace and Bicycle and Pedestrian Trail and a splash park that will be completed in the summer of 2014.
This grant program was established to promote the use of recycled Kentucky waste tires in the form of crumb rubber for athletic fields, playgrounds, and other applications that will protect the health, safety and welfare of the public and enhance the environment as well as develop a market for Kentucky waste tires.
The existing mulch base at the playground will be removed and crumb rubber will be installed by the Jeffersontown Public Works Department.
