Playground in the Park
A new, fully accessible, 1.2-acre playground was built at Patriarche Park with the help of hundreds of community volunteers in 2014. The Playground in the Park “Re-Imagined” project was the result of a great partnership between the City of East Lansing and the Rotary Club of East Lansing; and could not have been built without the tremendous support of the community.
