The dog-friendly off-leash area for large dogs at Optimist Park has been reopened. The City of Laramie Parks and Recreation Department closed the fenced area earlier in the week  due to muddy conditions to prevent potential impacts to existing vegetation.

Warmer weather had caused extreme muddy conditions, resulting in the closure.

The City of Laramie thanks the community for patience during the temporary closure.

Please feel free to contact the Parks and Recreation Director, Paul Harrison at 307-721-5260, or the Parks Manager, David Schott at 307-721-5264, with any question or concerns.
