Where's that Confounded Lake?
Town Lake Park has been drained in preparation of the long planned Wetland Restoration Project. The project, funded by the Clean Water Management Trust Fund, has the principal aim of improving water quality in the Robeson Creek Watershed, but it will also increase recreational opportunities, enhance wildlife habitat and beautify the area. The lower lake will remain a lake.
While work is ongoing, park patrons are encouraged to stay out of the lakebed for their own safety. Construction should start within a few weeks and will proceed through next spring. More information is available in the text of the image below.
