NOTICE: Sassafras Playground at Laurel Hills Partial Closure

News posted Nov. 27, 2018 - 10:30 am
Laurel Hills Sassafras Playground

Portions of the Sassafras Playground at Laurel Hills Park are temporarily closed. A large portion of the main playground is closed. The shelter, sandpit, swings, basketball court, and a small section of the two- to five-year-old play area are open. Due to temperature changes, the rubber playground surface layers have separated causing bubbling in the top layer that causes a trip hazard. We are working with the contractor, Landscape Structures to find a permanent solution.

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