About 200 people helped celebrate the Open House for Twin Lakes Park on Friday, May 27. The long-anticipated park was funded in part with a grant from the Clean Water Land and Legacy Amendment as administered by the DNR Parks and Trails Legacy Grant Program. (http://www.gis.leg.mn/iMaps/Legacy/index.php?address=florence,%20mn).
The park is open for camping. It has 17 electric sites with 100' gravel camping pads, and one ADA compliant electrical site that is paved. There is a shower / bathroom building, and an excellent picnic shelter that easily hold 8 picnic tables. Though shade is currently at a premium, the site has been planted with shade trees that will leave a lasting legacy well into the future.
