As many of you know, the parking lot at Carver Lake Park (CLP) in Woodbury is in rough shape and needs some serious work.
Good news – it’s happening this fall! Bad news – it will significantly impact access to the park and trails.
The Carver Lake Park off-road cycling trail and bike park playground will be closed beginning Monday, Aug. 31, to allow for replacement of retaining walls, paved trails, parking lots and modifications to the entrance of the park. Work is expected to last through October, pending inclement weather. The park and trail closure is necessary to ensure the safety of park users and construction workers.
The park closure will include the bike park playground and off-road cycling trail.
As part of the project, the small parking lot at the top of the hill near the bike park playground will be expanded to 15 parking spaces. In addition, larger parking stalls for vehicles with recreational equipment such as kayaks, canoes and bicycles also will be constructed on the west end of the large parking lot, which will be reconfigured to improve traffic flow.
Please plan to ride at other trails in the Metro area while CLP is offline.
