LeRoy Haagen Memorial Park Playground to close Oct. 2 for surfacing upgrade 

September 29, 2023

The playground at LeRoy Haagen Memorial Park, 13412 N.E. LeRoy Haagen Memorial Drive, will temporarily close Monday, Oct. 2 and could remain closed through Friday, Oct. 20, to accommodate the installation of new poured-in-place rubber surfacing. The park will remain open during the playground closure.  

The existing rubber tiles under the playground equipment are starting to separate, causing a tripping hazard. The new surfacing to be installed at the playground is poured-in-place rubber, a safe, durable material that meets Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards for playground accessibility.  

Community members are invited to explore other nearby playgrounds during the LeRoy Haagen Memorial Park playground closure: 

Environmental factors impact the installation of poured-in-place rubber surfacing, so the exact duration of the closure is weather-dependent. Stateline LLC of La Center, Washington is completing the work.
