Leland Lake Public Access Renovation

Category Overview

The State Lands Development and Renovation category provides funding to two state agencies to repair, renovate, and develop outdoor recreation facilities on existing recreation lands. As the popularity of outdoor recreation increases in our state, these grants help address overcrowding, ensure our outdoor amenities are safe for public use, improve visitor experience, and allow more people to enjoy our great outdoors.

This project replaced the fishing dock, replaced the vault toilet, re-graded the road and parking lot, and renovate the trail along the shoreline for bank fishers and provide an accessible bank side fishing opportunity.
