  • Promenade feature with restroom and concession buildings
  • Installation of a wetlands educational trail section on the north end of the lake

All of these features would be connected to the lake trail system.

West of Red Oaks
  • The property to the west of the Red Oaks will be left mostly natural as it is today.
  • There will be one trail leading from the parking lot on Duncan Road to the north end of the lake and the wetland educational trail etc.
  • We have no plans to bring the public thru the Village of the Red Oaks to any of the park facilities or parking lots.
  • Our maintenance staff may use the two access points (one in the south and one in the west) for maintenance or initial construction access.
  • None of the ball fields or sports courts, or skateboard facility will be lighted.
  • Most of the parking lots will be lighted but not all.
  • This lighting will be low level and controlled so as not to be directed into the homes in the Red Oaks.
  • We will plant a live screen planting along the east side of the Red Oaks this fall, so it begins to grow in to provide future privacy from the park.
