Community Park, located in Jefferson City, MO is a 3.5-acre neighborhood park that children and adults alike are enjoying. Jefferson City Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department opened the much-needed renovated park before officially complete so that residents could start exploring the park features for family outings and outdoor getaways. Landworks Studio, LLC provided master planning and construction documentation services as part of a complete renovation to meet the needs of the nearby residents. The master plan showcases the history of the surrounding Historic Foot District and offers design elements to bring a diverse population together to participate in outdoor activities and gatherings.

A Place to Gather and Play

Musselman & Hall Contractors, LLC finished the work needed on the Community Park in Jefferson City, Mo with colorful concrete using the Bomanite Sandscape Texture Exposed Aggregate System with Bomanite Con-Color for a fun splash pad for everyone to enjoy.Community Park is unrecognizable from its former life as an empty grass plot, it has now been turned into a modern play area that includes a large climbing feature made of a complex web of ropes with a tall metal tube slide that takes center stage. Along one side runs a pair of zip lines, a unique style of teeter-totter, large net swings, interactive play sculptures, obstacle course-type with climbing bars and platforms, toddler’s play mounds and climbing logs are additional features found within the park. The full park is covered in turf, including a small hill with two built-in slides. The park has two pavilions on either side of the restroom buildings that provide shade for individuals or groups. Continuing with the decorative and fun design some of the tabletops under the shelter were given a checkerboard pattern treatment.

Colorful Splash pad Represents Historic Foot District

Musselman & Hall Contractors, LLC finished the work needed on the Community Park in Jefferson City, Mo with colorful concrete using the Bomanite Sandscape Texture Exposed Aggregate System with Bomanite Con-Color for a fun splash pad for everyone to enjoy.Closest to the parking lot is the cooling colorful splash pad with multiple jets of water shooting out of the ground. The water is on a minute-long timer to save water when it’s not being used, but nearby are three buttons on pedestals to turn them right back on when they’re in use. In order to complete the splash pad design and ready it for use, Bomanite Licensee, Musselman & Hall Contractors, LLC were called in to put the finishing touches in place. Landworks Studio had specified a Bomanite exposed aggregate finish with several Bomanite concrete stains, the local winning bid contractor, Sircal Contracting, was unable to fulfill the Bomanite specification portion therefore they formed and installed the gray bands while Musselman & Hall finished up the 995 square foot pour with Bomanite Sandscape® Texture colored with seven different Bomanite Con-Color penetrating stains in Beech, Coal Gray, Mist Green, Paprika, Steel Blue, Travertine Beige and Sienna. Stencils were applied to create the historical representation of the foot district.

Slip Resistant Durable Hardscapes Create Safe Environments

Musselman & Hall Contractors, LLC finished the work needed on the Community Park in Jefferson City, Mo with colorful concrete using the Bomanite Sandscape Texture Exposed Aggregate System with Bomanite Con-Color for a fun splash pad for everyone to enjoy.When applied to concrete, Bomanite Con-Color will provide variegated and translucent coloring effects without creating a film or coating that can be worn away. Bomanite Con-Color is a viable alternative to traditional acid-based stains when a larger color palette or ease of installation is required. Preventing free-moisture migration and increased surface abrasion resistance along with no VOC/VOS content were just a few of the benefits that led Landworks Studio to specify the Bomanite product. Used in conjunction with the Bomanite Sandscape Texture Exposed Aggregate System, specifically designed for outdoor applications provided a palette of slip-resistant consistent texture and durable hardscape.

Award Winning Decorative Concrete

Musselman & Hall Contractors, LLC earned the 2020 Best Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Systems Project Silver Award for this $2.5 Million Park Rehabilitation using the Bomanite Sandscape Texture Exposed Aggregate System with Bomanite Con-Color creating a colorful decorative concrete splash pad for everyone to enjoy now and into the future at the Community Park.

Canobie Lake Park is New England’s Amusement Park known for its FUN! Realizing the need to create more FUN, Canobie Lake Park’s Castaway Island underwent a large expansion. The Tiki resort-like atmosphere now features a wave pool, 60-foot water slides, a Tidal River, a Rain Fortress, a kid friendly lagoon, a Caribbean inspired restaurant with tiki bar and private cabana rentals that include a television, refrigerator and lockers.

This 100 year old family operated park has been keeping up with the times with renovations and updates throughout the years. Bomanite licensee, Harrington Bomanite has been a part of those additions for more than 30 years.  Harrington Bomanite has installed so many upgrades and enhancements throughout the park and was presented with its greatest challenge of the “Tidal River Project” an addition to the 45,000 square foot Castaway Island expansion. The overall renovation using the Bomanite Imprint Systems included multiple Bomanite stamped concrete patterns and color hardener and release agent colors installed as the decking, plaza, restrooms and water areas.

Canobie Lake Park, Castaway Island Expansion, drainage walkway meandering brook Stamped with Bomacron Garden Stone Pattern Decorative ConcreteThe most challenging aspect was to achieve a drainage system in the 2+ acres site, that satisfied state and local environmental concerns, while at the same time maintaining aesthetics demanded by the owner (and designer) Raymond Captell. Pavers were not part of the drainage solution. After months of brainstorming, Captell came up with an 8’ wide “meandering brook” concept of stamped concrete. The 8’ area was designed with a 4′ wide center area of the Bomacron Garden Stone pattern, then a 12″ wide drain grate on each side, which in turn was bordered with a 12″ Bomanite Textured Border. Below this 8′ wide area would be a 4′ deep engineered system of graded aggregates for drainage.

The challenging part for Harrington Bomanite was not just the pouring and stamping, but the forming. Harrington Bomanite accessed the design perimeters and was able to figure the best way to achieve Captell’s winding waterway concept and bring it to life with a custom aqua blue color hardener to give it the final appearance of water in a real-life brook. In the end, the two serpentine drains, totaling 380 linear feet, were able to infiltrate storm water and minimize runoff, while at the same time adding another aesthetic dimension to the overall deck.

Canobie Lake Park, Castaway Island Expansion, Kids lagoon Stamped with Bomacron Garden Stone Pattern Decorative ConcreteThe custom blue colors were also used in several tones and shades to mimic the ocean in the water reservoir, kids lagoon and bathroom areas. Restroom concrete floors were textured with the Bomacron Sandstone Texture imprint and the bottom of the Tidal river with the Bomacron Light Slate Texture imprint. The beach areas were simulated with the Bomacron Regular Slate Texture and Light brown tones of Color Hardener and Release Agent to get that perfect sandy beach vibe. One final touch in creating that Tiki-resort design is the Bomacron 11.5” Boardwalk pattern running throughout the resort including the Lifeguard walk, thus making it the perfect Island getaway.

Bomanite of Tulsa, Inc. worked with Alaback Design Associates to specify Bomanite Revealed Exposed Aggregate System to produce a slip resistant surface for a splash pad on the City of Tulsa, Parks Department project Manion Park.

Manion Park Splash pad used recycled glass as the aggregate to produce the vibrant paving option that offered excellent slip resistance for kids on the playground. Saw-cuts where placed between colors to produce a clean break point for each color on the 2,800 SF splash pad.

Bomanite Revealed is an architectural exposed concrete with varying exposure depths using decorative aggregates that are bond in a unique binder and apply to plastic concrete. The Bomanite Revealed System utilizes pre-blended binders, light fast pigments, topical treatments and advanced application procedures to produce a finished product that showcases the seeded aggregate. Unlike most surface seeded installations, Bomanite Revealed provides 100% exposure of the decorative aggregate with no native sands detracting from the finished appearance. The final product is unique alternate to other decorative concrete finishes while producing a monolithic concrete slab with a low life cycle cost due to the pre-aged nature of the surface. Bomanite Revealed is suited for exterior applications—anywhere that improved wear resistance for light to moderate-duty vehicular or foot traffic combined with an architectural finish is necessary.
