                      (The area in between the NLR Community Center and Laman Library)

A new accessible playground has been built on the footprint of the old water fountain in Laman Plaza between the North Little Rock Community Center and the Laman Library. This new playground improves access to play for children with disabilities and 200+ children and teens from local low-income neighborhoods who use the William F. Laman Library as a community center.  This universally designed play space can accommodate 269 children at a time.  Renovations to the Laman Plaza provides the Laman Library and the North Little Rock Parks and Recreation Department more space to deliver safe community programs. We envision Laman Plaza as a destination for families by continuing to build our community across economic barriers and abilities. Families of all demographics can spend the day in North Little Rock going between the library and the park/playground for free. 

Additional accessible parking and entrance to Laman Plaza is available in the parking lot behind Laman Library and the North Little Rock Community Center.  Accessible bathrooms are available in William F. Laman Library.
