Reaching New Heights With a new SYNLawn Rooftop Playground Field for the Madison Boys & Girls Club

Harlem, NY — The Boys & Girls Club works hard across the country to engage kids in fun and enriching after-school activities. The Madison Boys & Girls Club in Sugar Hill, Harlem, recently invested in a major improvement to their facility to encourage more physical activity from their members. It’s easy to get kids excited about exercise with a rooftop athletic field designed to accommodate three different sports and many other group activities. The 6,000-square-foot project came from Rogers Partners architect firm, a group SYNLawn New York also worked with on nearly 50,000 square feet of other area school designs. The team is proud to support their local community with the highest quality artificial turf available in North America.

Custom Logo Field for a Cohesive Identity

Feeling a sense of belonging and purpose by being a member of the Boys & Girls Club plays an essential role in the program. The SYNLawn team helped achieve this with the new three-sport athletic field by cutting and installing a full-sized logo right in the center. SYNLawn’s SYNRye turf was combined in four different colors for crisp edges and clear details. Ultra Base panels anchored the artificial grass while providing superior drainage to prevent damage to the roof below. The grass can take heavy daily use for various classes and games without showing signs of wear, while the kids love how soft it feels.

A Class A fire rating ensures the installation meets all standards for rooftop use, but it’s the soybean-based backing that really makes SYNLawn products stand out from the crowd. With the markings and equipment to support soccer, football, and softball games all on the same rooftop field, the Madison Boys & Girls Club can expand their sports programs and reach more kids in need of support and guidance. Kids interested in joining must apply and then follow a behavioral code to encourage staying on the right track. With so many children affected by social and economic factors in the Sugar Hill area, the Madison Boys & Girls Club plays a positive in the lives of thousands of kids each year.

Choose SYNLawn artificial grass for your park or recreational project. We’re associated with the National Parks Department and have the experience to select and install the right turf the first time.
