Decades of happy children have explored every inch of the wooden play structure at Patriarche Park. Today we bid it a fond farewell as we make way for a safer, more accessible play structure that will delight children and families for decades to come. We recognize the community members and leaders from East Lansing Rotary that worked so hard to make Playground in the Park a reality.

Demolition begins at Patriarche Park on a frigid day in January as the first step in site preparation which will lead to a community build event in June of 2014.
