Thanks to an Iowa Resource Enhancement and Protection Program (REAP) grant, improvements are being made to offer more attractions for park goers to enjoy.
Below is a rendering of the lake once the project is completed.
Phase one is completed which includes the addition of an accessible fishing pier, improved shoreline fishing areas and an ADA walkway from the parking lot.
To the west of the lake, 4 acres of pollinator plants will be planted in the open field. It will include a mix of 52 different flowers and grasses that attract pollination insects and butterflies. It will be one of the local Cedar Valley Monarch Zones backed by the Young Family Foundation.
Park shelters, interpretive panels, and benches are planned for later in this project in phase II scheduled to begin in Summer 2023 thanks to a grant from Resource Enhancement and Protection commonly referred to as REAP.
