Are You Happy About the Changes Coming to Lake Lansing Park North?
If you know me, you know I love to hike. Anytime the weather is fairly decent, I'm outside hiking or in my hammock. One of my favorite places to go is Lake Lansing Park North. It's relatively close to my house and has over 10 miles of trails.
Ingham County park officials announced that they would like to make some improvements to some of the trails at Lake Lansing Park North and it's stirred up some conversation.
The Change Some Users Don't Agree On
There's a proposal to line the trails with crushed limestone. Ingham County Parks Director, Tim Morgan, says that the stone will be used on less than two miles of the trails to make them more leveled with the boardwalks.
We’re going to be addressing about 20% to make them universally accessible to all residents.
Lake Lansing Park North's Improvement Package
According to the Lansing State Journal, the project is expected to cost $1.5 million and would not only include the crushed limestone, but fitness stations, reconstructed boardwalks, upgraded facilities and new signage.
I will be forever grateful if they upgrade the signage because I'm not going to lie, I get lost every single time I go. You'd think I'd have it figured out by now with how often I go but hey, I never said I was the brightest crayon in the box.
You can read more on how the project will be funded on the Lansing State Journal's website.
