In June of 2020, the Laramie City Council approved a Memorandum of Understanding with the Laramie Rotary Clubs outlining the details of naming the future park Laramie Rotary Clubs Park at Grand View Heights. Through development, the City of Laramie has had 7.62 acres of land dedicated as a future City Park in the Grand View Heights subdivision. This land is located north of I-80, south of Bill Nye Avenue at the intersection of Bill Nye Avenue and Glacier Street. The Laramie Rotary Clubs, Rotary Club of Laramie and Laramie Sunrise Rotary Club, have committed to contributing $25,000 (approximately 10% of the estimated cost to construct phase 1 of the park) toward the design of the future park along with future community service, outreach programs, community activities and assistance with future additions to the park. This partnership will assist the City both financially and physically through park development and assist the Rotary Clubs visibility and awareness within the community.
On Wednesday, September 22, there was an Open House to meet the landscape architecture firm, Russell + Mills Studio, to present conceptual designs and receive community input for the design of the Laramie Rotary Clubs Park at Grand View Heights.
The Laramie Rotary Clubs Park at Grand View Heights hopes to have construction documents ready for 2024/2025. The construction of this park plans to include playgrounds, synthetic turf, several trees, and a basketball court.
