SYNLawn® Unveils 15,000 sq. ft Project “SPARK: On the Circle” Featuring Indiana Artificial Grass

On Tuesday, July 18th, Downtown Indianapolis, IN, became host to a spectacular outdoor greenspace designed with Indiana artificial grass from SYNLawn Indiana. Downtown Indy, Inc. is collaborating with Big Car Collaborative, the Capital Improvement Board, Lake City Bank, and other organizations from July through November to provide daily programming, games, live performances, and cultural events every Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and every Friday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Bring your friends and coworkers to the southwest corner of Monument Circle for an exciting and unique experience. Spark on the Circle will serve as a hub for Indianapolis arts and culture, free engagement opportunities, and community-building seven days a week.

“SPARK on the Circle is an incredible team effort to make a welcoming, comfortable, social, playful, and creative place that is truly for everyone,” said Jim Walker, executive director of Big Car Collaborative. “This is a bold move that shows residents and visitors alike that our city really cares about them. SPARK is a place where you can spend time with family, make friends, and feel restored after taking a breather in this green oasis in the heart of our city.”

The introduction of SPARK is a component of Mayor Joe Hogsett’s South Downtown Connectivity Vision Plan, which was unveiled in 2021 and serves as a roadmap for connectivity and public infrastructure developments in Downtown’s southern corridor. This helped to shape the decision to close the area completely to vehicles, along with community feedback on Monument Circle’s future from prior SPARK seasons on the inner curb lane in the southwest quadrant. The urban design firm Merritt Chase, SYNLawn Indiana, and the landscaping business Engledow Group all contribute to the incredible success of SPARK: On the Circle.

Eco-Friendly Benefits 

Visitors of SPARK: On the Circle will enjoy the stunning views of our artificial grass for the coming months and beyond. SYNLawn Indiana artificial grass is designed with eco-friendly plant-based materials that eliminate the need for upkeep and last for several years. It is with the help of American farmers that we can replace harmful components with sugar cane and soybean oil to conserve water and reduce carbon emissions. It is one of our primary goals to promote environmental sustainability as a leader in our industry, and we are proud to be the first supplier of plant-based synthetic grass in Indiana.

Commercial and Fire Safety Standards

SPARK is certain to draw in thousands of people each day, and with this in mind, the property managers knew they had to be certain that their installation would meet commercial safety standards. SYNSport, much like many of our other synthetic turf varieties, meets IPEMA certification. This means that it has been laboratory tested to meet fall height attenuations of up to 10 feet and to prevent common injuries and abrasions, making it safer for all ages. 

In addition, SYNLawn Indiana is proud to accommodate the safety needs of SPARK: On the Circle by utilizing SYNSport because of its fire safety rating. SYNSport is part of a growing collection of ASTM E108 Class A fire-rated artificial turf options. This means that SYNSport has passed eight unique burn tests and is proven to help prevent the spread of fires. Instead of causing the blaze to rapidly increase, this faux grass solution will simply melt and blacken. This plays a large role in helping to prevent catastrophic property damage as well as potentially fatal injuries.
