The Details

Squirrel Lake Park is a predominately wooded existing park. The plan calls for pervious paving, introduction of bioretention and bioswales to handle erosion and runoff. Amenities include permanent restrooms, fishing pier, shade shelter, terraced play areas, upgraded trail surfaces, and a connection to the Four Mile Creek Greenway. Wildlife habitat preservation was a concern. The plan calls for minimal tree removal and habitat enhancement for birds. The park received a 2009 PARTF grant.
