Maple City, MI — The Glen Lake School District, located in Maple City, hired SYNLawn Michigan to install a practice sports field with a prefabricated logo. The public school district is located north of Traverse City and sits along Big Glen Lake. After installing a full-sized football field at the district high school, the board voted to replicate it for their practice field. SYNLawn’s state-of-the-art technology created the customized logo in the center of the field.
Glen Lake Community School is ranked 70th in the state for academics and houses over 700 kids. Since the school is well versed in academic offerings, the district wanted to match the education with proper recreation facilities. Sports teams and gym classes use the new practice field after school and during breaks.
Going Green with Prefabricated SYNLawn Synthetic Grass
Glen Lake aims to maintain green living district-wide. In fact, the district is an official part of Michigan Green Schools. This non-profit agency aims to help schools in the state to achieve environmental goals. These goals include protecting air, land, water, and animals. Glen Lake has been a part of this initiative for the past five years, providing sustainable activities and education.
In order to maintain its status as a Green School, Glen Lake is required to follow certain guidelines. Schools can keep their status by participating in sustainability-focused activities and developing new eco-friendly projects. Glen Lake selected SYNLawn to complete the practice field due to its green EnviroLoc+ soy-based backing. The logo is a combination of SYNSport and SYNPlay 48. In addition to the prefabricated logo, 6,000 square feet of SYNSport was installed to complete the practice field.
