Greenway Repairs and Closures

As greenways trails and structures age, maintenance and repairs are necessary. Due to the nature of this work, the trails will occasionally need to be closed to complete this work in an safe and efficient manner.

Sassafras Playground at Laurel Hills - OPEN MAY 21

Sassafras playground at Laurel Hills is now open as of Tuesday, May 21, 2019.

The playground was closed for resurfacing* starting Monday, April 29, 2019. Temporary repairs were made to the safety surface in late 2018 to allow us to keep the playground open through April 2019.

*In late November 2018, 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.
