New playground equipment was installed and ready for use by the 2007 July 4th Holiday. The Park & Rec Advisory Board hosted an Open House to draw attention to the improvements that have been made to the Park during the past few years. As luck would have it, that happened to be the first Saturday in weeks that it rained. And to make matters worst, it was the rain event that devastated southeastern MN. So needless to say the Open House did not go as planned but everyone that attended did have a good time!
We thank the Cannon Falls Lions Club for their support! Thank you to the Cannon Falls Rotary Club for donating benches for the Park – they will be installed in 2008 (click here for pictures).
Goodhue County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution to purchase new playground equipment for Goodhue County’s Lake Byllesby Park at their 01-May-07 regular board meeting.
Several service organizations from the County have approached Park Board members and asked if they could help fund the purchase of additional pieces of playground equipment and / or help with various aspects of installation of the new equipment. Goodhue County appreciates the interest of the service organizations and is working with them to coordinate efforts.
