NOTICE: Sassafras Playground at Laurel Hills Open

News posted Jan. 07, 2019 - 10:30 am
Laurel Hills Sassafras Playground

Sassafras playground at Laurel Hills is now open.* Temporary repairs have been made to the safety surface allowing us to keep the playground open through winter. Major resurfacing will take place this spring when the weather and temperature meet the required levels for permanent restoration. During this process, surfacing will be replaced with the original color patterns. Closure dates for this project will be posted as soon as the schedule is finalized.

*In late November, with changing temperatures, the rubber playground surface layers separated causing bubbling in the top layer resulting in trip hazards and closure of portions of the playground.

For additional Raleigh Parks playgrounds designed for inclusive play, please visit the Method Community Park Boundless playground or Marsh Creek Park Boundless playground.
