The new surfacing being installed at the playground is poured-in-place rubber, a safe, durable material that meets ADA standards for playground accessibility
VANCOUVER – 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 Fri., 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 being 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:
- First Place Park (1499 N.E. 152nd Ave.)
- Fircrest Park (12100 N.E. 5th St.)
- Hearthwood Park (801 N.E. Hearthwood Blvd.)
- Countryside Park (15304 N.E. 7th St.)
Installation of poured-in-place rubber surfacing is impacted by environmental factors, so the exact duration of the closure is weather dependent. The work is being completed by Stateline LLC of La Center, Washington.
