From the Resene News 3/19

After complaints of legs and knees making contact with the concrete fixtures the council chose to add colour.

Pitcher Park is situated in a well populated area and frequented by people of all ages, a popular location, except for one problem.

The problem was the solid concrete seats that were practical by day became very hard to pick up with one’s eye at dusk and dawn when many walkers, runners and dog owners would venture through. After complaints of legs and knees making contact with the concrete fixtures the council chose to add colour.

Resene Adrenalin (fluoro orange) was selected as the main background with Resene Double Friar Grey (stone brown) used for the feature leaves that were stencilled in place. The combination was a success creating not only a safer environment for those enjoying the facility but also adding a sense of colourful fun.

Resene Concrete Primer was applied first then topcoated in Resene Lumbersider, this being a tried and true product that would last the distance and could be easily recoated when needed in the future. While the painting was easy, the challenge was keeping park users from touching the project while it was being painted.
