Optimist Dog Park Closure 
The City of Laramie Parks and Recreation Department has closed the fenced Dog Friendly Off-Leash Area for large dogs at Optimist Park due to current and expected muddy conditions and potential impacts to existing vegetation, under the authority of LMC 12.48.010.  The fenced large Dog Off-Leash Area is CLOSED until further notice.  Please help Parks and Recreation minimize and mitigate the impacts to the area by not using the fenced large dog friendly off leash area in muddy conditions to protect this great amenity for our community. 

The small dog friendly off leash area at Optimist Park will remain open for use by both large and small dogs.  In addition, the dog friendly off leash area located north of the Aragon Softball Complex near 22nd and Harney will remain open. 
Please feel free to contact the Parks and Recreation Director, Paul Harrison at 307-721-5260, or the Parks Manager, David Schott at 307-721-5264, with any question or concerns.
