City of Big Lake, Minnesota
Interested in providing residents and visitors a safer, more pedestrian friendly environment, the City of Big Lake is constantly looking for ways to enhance the quality of life for their residents. With a Statewide Health Improvement Program grant, a Parks and Trails Master Plan was created to strengthen and promote increased opportunities for non-motorized transportation.
Bolton & Menk delivered an updated Parks and Trails Master Plan to establish a safer, more comprehensive parks and trails system that is aesthetically pleasing and accessible to all users. The system provides a variety of recreational opportunities to all residents and visitors of Big Lake. The ultimate goal being a better quality of life; reducing health care costs and increasing safety.
Through a statewide grant, public input, and community leadership, the Big Lake community now has a sound recreational road map to a safer, more diverse, and more appealing parks and trails system.
