SYNLawn Costa Rica recently embarked on a remarkable philanthropic journey with CEPIA, a non-profit social organization dedicated to community upliftment. This project aimed to create a safe and beautiful play area and activity space for the students at CEPIA’s school, demonstrating the shared commitment to the Costa Rican community. The SYNLawn CR team, local businesses, and private donors faced and overcame significant challenges to overcome uneven elevations and drainage issues, showcasing the resilience and creativity inherent in the installation process.
Creating an Activity Space Transforms a Community
The team from SYNLawn Costa Rica transformed CEPIA’s baren playground into a lively, green recreational activity space, positively impacting the lives of their young learners, parents, and community. Thanks to their new artificial grass surfacing, hundreds of students can now enjoy a healthy, attractive central space for play and relaxation, instilling a sense of pride and enhancing their overall mental well-being. The heartwarming response from the community, especially the children and CEPIA representatives, has been profoundly gratifying. Laetitia Deweer, CEPIA’s development director, summed up their joy perfectly: “The kids are happy! It looks amazing and beautiful and clean.”
Giving Back Enriches the Community for Future Generations
SYNLawn Costa Rica’s dedication was unwavering throughout this project. We provided labor and materials and handled import taxes, shipping, and other costs, ensuring the transition from a troublesome landscape to a stunningly beautiful and functional activity space. We believe in the power of giving back, and as a testament to this, our commitment to CEPIA continues. We have pledged to offer free maintenance annually, ensuring the playground remains an enriching environment for future generations.
At SYNLawn Costa Rica, we continue to explore how our landscaping skills can benefit our community. This collaboration with CEPIA represents a single step in our ongoing journey. As we create more sustainable, green landscapes, we remain dedicated to fostering a brighter future for our community. We invite you to follow our journey of transforming spaces and lives — one synthetic turf installation at a time.
