DAKOTA NATURE PARK
A former landfill site with woodlands, fishing ponds, and open spaces was redeveloped into a nature park that includes trails, accessible fishing piers and access points, canoe launches, picnic shelters, interpretive exhibits, wayfinding signs, mountain bike trail, restored prairie, and nature center.
In 2010, Big Muddy developed a park master plan for the City of Brookings. The park's vision was defined through a series of stakeholder interviews and community input meetings. The $2,300,000 project was completed over a three-year period.
