The development of Dakota Nature Park on 22nd Avenue South will begin the week of April 23, 2012. This initial construction phase will include the two major entrances and parking lots, two paved trails and two floating docks. The second phase, including the nature center, will follow closely to this first phase of construction. Therefore, Dakota Nature Park will be closed to all public activities until further notice. The recreation trail bordering the northern edge of the park will remain open for now.
