Ongoing Projects


Terrace Oaks Park Savanna/Woodland Restoration
The City began large-scale restoration activities at Terrace Oaks Park in 2014 with a 19 acre project in the northwest corner of the park.  This project was conducted in partnership with Great River Greening, with funding for the second phase of the project contributed through the Conservation Partner Legacy grant program from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  In 2018-2019, the City plans to expand the restoration effort to an additional 26 acres of adjacent parkland.  This project will be funded by another Conservation Partner Legacy grant from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Some of the goals of the restoration work at Terrace Oaks Park are to remove invasive plant species, restore the native plant community, improve wildlife habitat and improve the health of existing oak trees.
