We looked into all the options at least a couple of times, since the tiny
wood chips are a pain, but safe for the kids. The rubber surfaces are
outrageously expensive. As I recall, it would have cost something like
$5,000 to cover our small play area.

But don't be fooled; ALL surfaces that cats can dig in will get pooped in.
Even gravel. Someone will need to clean it out regularly.
