The City of Laramie announced today that Kiowa Park's playground is closed for renovations starting tomorrow, June 2. The park, located on the corner of Bannock and Kiowa street in Laramie, will receive a remodel to update the park for its visitors. The new playground features equipment designed for 5 to 12-year-olds, plus new turf.

When Will the Renovation Finish?

The city estimates the project to last from June 2 to June 20, provided weather conditions allow the project to remain on track.

Until the renovations are over, it's best to avoid the park. Instead, the city recommends families visit other Laramie parks to enjoy the summer weather. Not sure where to go? Here's a list of other playgrounds available in Laramie:
