Lake Waconia’s Coney Island One Step Closer to Public Use

Turning Lake Waconia’s Coney Island into a public park is one step closer to reality.

According to the Sun Patriot, the Carver County Parks Department completed phases one and two of the project, which were archaeological and historical evaluations of the island, meaning officials can now transition to cleanup of the island.

The island is 34 acres in size, which includes about two miles of trails and recreational use areas, but was once privately owned, and had fallen into disrepair in recent years, the report said.

The cleanup phase is expected to begin next spring.
