There was an article over the weekend in the Star Tribune discussing how many people are attracted to the Minneapolis lakes compared to the suburban parks...
"Runners swarm to the lakes," said Jessie Mosier, assistant manager at the Running Room outlet in Burnsville. Although she loves the options at home in Dakota County, she gets the attraction, including the safety factor: the comfort you feel when there are lots of people around and it isn't just you in the suburban woods.Is there an opportunity for Mound here?
We have Lost Lake, whose shorelines, for the most park is owned by the city, or the county. In it's Comprehension Plan, the city does have a vision of creating a trail that goes completely around Lost Lake... clearly the Andrew Sisters Trail is a start to this idea. Think of all the wonderful connections a trail like this would make for our city between the Dakota Trail, the new development that will happen along Auditor's Rd, Surfside, the Gillespie Center and businesses and residences along Commerce. All within an pleasant stroll along Lost Lake.
How can we make Mound a Place on the lake?
