Parks & Recreation Projects Spring 2011 Playground upgrades

Several of the current playgrounds are scheduled to be upgraded during the spring/summer of 2012. Playgrounds that are being considered for these upgrades are Washington Tornado Slide, and Undine Park Playground.

OPTIMIST PARK REHABILITATION PROJECT

Staff is currently working with an architect to finish the design of Optimist Park Phase 1. This phase includes the repositioning of the playground equipment at the Greenbelt Trailhead along with the addition of several pieces of new equipment. The old playground located along Spruce Street will be removed, and this area will be revamped and sodded. The current off leash area for dogs located in the native area west of the park will be removed, and a new dog park with areas for large and small dogs will be constructed in the established park area directly south of Garfield Street.

GARFIELD STREET FOOTBRIDGE PAINTING RESTORATION PROJECT

The historic downtown pedestrian footbridge at Garfield Street, a walkway connecting the west side to downtown over the Union Pacific Railroad maintenance yard, is slated to be painted this summer. This project is funded by a Wyoming Department of Transportation Grant (TEAL) in addition to a Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund Grant.

RAILROAD HERITAGE PARK HISTORIC “SNOW� TRAIN

The historic snow train is now complete on the south side of Depot Park. The next phase of this project will be to erect a small ornamental fence around the train for protection. This low profile fence will not impede visitors from viewing and photographing the train. Also planned is the completion of the asbestos abatement on the steam engine and the painting of the five train pieces to their original color.

PARK SHELTER UPGRADES

Several shelter upgrades were completed this past fall: new roof membrane and skylight installation at Optimist Park, new metal rook installment at Kiwanis Park, new ceiling and soffit installation at Undine Park. This project will continue in the spring with a new metal roof install at LaPrele Park, painting of Undine Shelter #1, new doors at LaBonte #1, and several electrical upgrades to the restrooms.

LABONTE PARK EAST PLAYGROUND SHADE STRUCTURE This site has been selected for the first playground shade system for the Laramie Parks Division. LaBonte Park was selected for our inaugural shade structure, both because of the sheer volume of children using the park and because the shade trees in this park are less mature than the shade trees in other similarly sized local parks. The shade structure will allow children, families and parks users a place to play, rest, read, picnic and simply have a break from the sun while still enjoying the outdoors. The new shade structure will be installed in the spring of 2012. This project is funded by the Albany County Recreation Board.

GREENBELT EXPANSION PROJECT

The next phase of the Greenbelt trail expansion is planned for the spring/ summer of 2012 that will include extending the current class 1 trail from 30th and Garfield Street along the Spring Creek Channel corridor to LaPrele Park. As funding permits the trail may be extended from LaPrele Park to 15th Street. The following year the Greenbelt trail expansion is planned to extend the class 1 trail from the UPRR trestle bridge on the Laramie River along the old Wyo/Colo railroad bed west through the Wyoming Territorial Park property under I-80 at Madison Street to Adams Street.

WASHINGTON PARK BASKETBALL COURT LIGHTING PROJECT The court lighting project is now complete. If you wish to activate the lighting during the evening hours, please follow the written instructions located directly west of the court on the electrical service. These lights will automatically deactivate at 10:00 p.m.

WEST GATEWAY ENTRANCE BEAUTIFICATION PROJECT

In the winter of 2012 the City will begin the conceptual design phase of the West Gateway Entrance Beautification project in partnership with the West Laramie Business Association. This planning effort will identify what type of beautification amenities/improvements (trees, shrubs, hardscape, lighting) the businesses and residents along the Snowy Range Road entrance corridor would prefer to see installed/constructed in the ROW on the north side of Snowy Range Road in future years.
