Eagle Point Park Restoration

Phase one of the environmental restoration planned at Eagle Point Park will begin this month. Work involves soil quality restoration and conversion of turf to native vegetation. This will reduce overall runoff and erosion and improve water quality downstream in the watersheds of Bee Branch Creek and the Mississippi River. The work will also provide new nature-based recreation opportunities for park visitors, create habitat for wildlife, and foster sustainability. This phase of the project will involve about 67 acres of the park and may include some vegetation clearing, and removal of invasive species, scrub brush, and trees. Most park facilities will remain open to public use throughout the project. Work is scheduled for completion next fall.
