Sun Lakes – McLeary Acquisition 1

Category Overview

State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.

Project Highlights

The scope of this project is to combine these funds with IAC #01-1163A, a federal Land and Water Conservation Fund project, to acquire approximately 45 acres of land adjacent to Sun Lakes State Park, including the rock outcrops along Park Lake shoreline. The site will provide access to Park Lake, and is a likely spot for future development as a day use site.
