[Related Photos] Marturano Recreation and Rubberecycle, two local companies will be donating a playground to Lakewood in memory of slain Police Officer Chris Matlosz, Committeeman Ray Coles said. The playground structure will be donated by the Marturano Recreation company, which is a local representative for the Game Time company, and Rubberecycle will be donating the flooring for the playground, using their newest Rubber Bond product.
The playground will be installed by Whirl Construction of Fort Monmouth.
“My cousins, friends and neighbors are police officers, and after seeing what happened right here in Lakewood, and the overwhelming experience, we felt we just had to do something”, Keith Sacks, Vice President of Rubbereycle tells TLS. “When I reached out to the other companies, they wholeheartedly agreed to the project”, Sacks said.
In 2009, Rubberecycle was chosen as the company to install the Rubber Mulch at the White House’s first playground, as reported on TLS. (See photos of the installation below).
Ray Coles says that Police Chief Rob Lawson as well as DPW Director Al Burgde will be deciding on the best location for the playground, which is expected to be ready for the Summer. TLS
