Playground in the Park

The Playground in the Park “Re-Imagined” project was the result of a partnership between the Rotary Club of East Lansing and the City of East Lansing. The new, 1.2-acre playground features a modern, eco-friendly design that is fully accessible and supports youth fitness. The playgrounds includes a wide variety of colorful play equipment, a poured-in-place playground surface, a rain garden, a brick entry plaza, walkways and much more. It officially opened on Aug. 4, 2014.

The community was involved in the design phase of the playground project and more than 300 volunteers were involved in assembling the playground as part of the Community Build over a three-day period in June 2014.

It's Not Too Late to Purchase a Brick Paver
It's not too late to support this project. Community members can still purchase a customized "brick paver" and help raise the remaining funds. The bricks will be placed in the proposed welcome plaza that is being designed as part of the project. Proceeds from the sale of the bricks – which are available in two sizes – will be used to pay for the new playground facility. The bricks will be installed in the entry plaza of the playground, with upcoming installation days planned for fall 2014 and spring 2015. How to order a brick paver.



According to MSU Women's Basketball Coach Suzy Merchant, the project is "an investment in our children and the future."
