Extremely happy that this land will be used a park land rather than residential or commercial development.

Three Rivers Park District has obviously implemented an effective program that focuses on the truly worthwhile land parcels. For example, in late 2011, the District dumped the perpetual hassle of being involved with the failing and ineffective-against-invasive-species Coon Rapids Dam. Anoka County's recreation department and the DNR can waste their time puttering around with that.

Go see it now before Three Rivers cuts down most of the trees and changes it from a wild recreational area to a cultured part that is mostly grass and artsy garbage for their financial fundraising projects like they did to the formerly wild Boy Scout camp on Silver Lake. It now hosts weddings and conventions and most of the century old oak trees are gone - likely never to return. I hope the church put limits into the development of this park because otherwise it is gone forever.

I lived 1 mile from this property and would fish Little Long Lake. What a great Gem to save as a park. It reminds me of being way up north in the wild the trees are huge. I miss it now that I live in Walker, MN. Two thumbs up When the Park opens Ill make a visit. Bob A guide for leisureoutdooradventures
