The City of Laramie Parks and Recreation Department announced Friday (October 25) that the playground in Laprele Park will be closed for the next few months while a replacement is installed.

The Parks Department plans to close the playground on October 28th. The playground will remain closed until the demolition of the old playground structure and the installation of the new playground structure is complete. Parks staff will have signage and barricades in place during this time.
