Lafayette park closes for renovations

Mar 19, 2014

Lafayette’s South Tipp Park is getting a makeover.

The city is partnering with Subaru of Indiana Automotive on the $260,000 project.

Crews are ripping out the old playground equipment to make way for a complete renovation of the park along Third Street, next to Bauer Community Center.

Plans include the addition of new swings, a 20-foot shelter, and water spritzer.

In honor of the primary donor, the park will be named Subaru South Tipp Park when it opens in early fall.
