The Lyons Valley River Park ponds are reaching completion. The Town thanks you for your continued patience as landscaping is still underway, and the area remains closed to the public.
In addition, we've received questions regarding the ecology of the pond water. The project's contractor is currently working with an ecologist to recommend a solution to mitigate the algae and weeds in the Lyons Valley Ponds area.
The Lyons Valley River Park Pond project is on schedule to be completed by the end of June 2019. Seeding and revegetation will occur during the first week of May. While active construction will slow down considerably, the area will remain closed to the public through at least June, while the seedlings and plants take root. The east side of the October and November hole area remains open to the public.
The scope of the LVRP Pond project consists of reshaping the pond, installing an internal trail system, restoring habitat and vegetation, and install of the sewer outfall line. Equipment will be staged at the wastewater treatment plant site.
Updates of the park's anticipated opening will be posted on this page. We thank you for your continued patience!
