Imagination Station Temporarily Shut Down Today

City announces the park is undergoing maintenance repairs.

The Imagination Station was temporarily closed today — several weeks earlier than expected.

Department of Public Services employees will be performing maintenance repairs to the playground in Brighton, City Manager Dana Foster said in a news release sent around 12:30 p.m. But the release did not specify the type of repairs being done, nor how long the park would be closed.

Who made the inquiry and what about the playground's materials was not further specified.

Brighton Patch has been unable to reach city officials this afternoon for further comment.
