"Parks and recreation areas are a vital part of our communities.  They promote physical fitness, well-being and economic growth," said Brad Pittam, general manager of LTR Products.  "Unfortunately many communities are facing park and recreation budget cuts.  That's why we're pleased to speak with parks and rec professionals about our Pinnacle Rubber Mulch made from recycled rubber.  As an innovative eco-friendly alternative to wood mulch used in playgrounds and landscaping, it will remain bright and plush for at least 12 years, helping communities save on the annual maintenance costs associated with wood mulch."  

Pinnacle Rubber Mulch makes parks and playgrounds safer for children.  As a playground safety surfacing, a six-inch layer of Pinnacle Rubber Mulch will cushion a child's fall from as high as 16 feet, providing up to 50 percent more fall-height protection than wood mulch using half of the material.  

Additionally, rubber mulch is non allergenic, non toxic and harmless to plants, pets and children.  It is also clean, minimizes airborne dust and particles, and does not splinter like wood mulch.

The theme of this year's NRPA Congress is "connecting communities."  The show will offer attendees cutting-edge education and research sessions, distinguished keynote speakers and valuable networking opportunities.

At the NRPA Congress and Expo, Pinnacle Rubber Mulch will be located at Booth 2039 in the Minneapolis Convention Center.
