Laurelhurst Park Playground Opening Delayed Until Next Week

Playground under construction

Wendy Kelley, volunteer coordinator for the ongoing remodeling the Laurelhurst Park playground, with a committee called, "Play it Safe at Laurelhurst Park,"  let us know that the playground won't open today as originally thought.

The Parks Department toldl her that some missing parts to the play equipment weren't discovered until the last minute and that they have also run out of the color stain for the concrete which needed which needs to be re-orderd.

The Parks Department is hoping for delivery of the play equipment parts early next week and re-opening mid-next week and apologizes that they weren't able to keep their opening day target date. 

"We want the play area to be a good reflection on all of us who have worked on it so hard and long. It will be a fantastic play area when it opens and no one will be disappointed," one of the landscape architects with the Parks Department said.

For photos and more information about the new equipment, visit the Parks website. or the Play It Safe Facebook page.
