The City of Laramie's newest park is on its way.

Construction of the Imperial Heights Park began Monday. The park is located on 4.8 acres near Sherman Hills Road and Morgan Drive, off Grand Avenue just past Walmart.

The park will include an accessible playground, concrete sidewalk, 70-foot prefabricated steel walking bridge and a shade structure.

Also in the works are a playground for 2- to 5-year-old children, picnic tables and benches, playground surfacing, a drainage system and restorative landscaping for the park.

Future phases of construction will bring a playground for 5- to 12-year-old children, natural play equipment and a rural walking path.
