 Current Status of Dog Park

Optimist Dog Park Closed will be closed April 17-28, for re-seeding due to current impacts to the vegetation, under the authority of LMC 12.48.010.  Parks staff requests that the public does not cross the locked gates to allow for the re-seeding to germinate and become established, protecting this great community amenity. The length of the closure will be dependent upon weather. 

On behalf of the City of Laramie, thank you for your patience through the re-seeding process and please feel free to contact the Parks and Recreation Director, Todd Feezer at 307-721-5260, or the Parks Manager, Scott Hunter at 307-721-5264, with any question or concerns.
