To direct the management of the park's resources and recreation development, the Dakota County is updating its master plan for the park. The plan is currently open to comment until Jan. 18, and the county is holding an open house on Tuesday, Jan. 14 to discuss the plan, take comments and answer questions.
Some of the proposed changes to the park include increasing picnic facilities, adding trails for all-season use, and improving facilities. There are also restoration activities included in the draft master plan.
The open house is 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14 at Western Service Center, located at 14955 Galaxie Avenue in Apple Valley.
