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 15 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.

For more information about the park, call the Lyon County Environmental Department at (507) 532-8214.

 

Majestic oak woodlands dominate the steeply sloping riparian landscape of the Cottonwood River within the 700 acre Garvin Park. Miles of trails, and plentiful rest areas allow visitors substantial opportunity to explore the rich habitat and diverse wildlife that use this park. Regionally know for horseback riding, Garvin Park has three campgrounds, and numerous shelters and open space; providing peaceful locations to relax. Garvin Park attracts visitors as diverse as its environment for public recreation.

 

The Environmental Department charges nominal fees for disposal of problem materials such as mattress, car seats, and electronic waste. Similarly, camping and building rental fees are low, yet help to pay for a portion of the total expenses of managing our parks, campgrounds, and trails.

RECYCLING

LANDFILL

 The Environmental Department provides rental of County Fairgrounds buildings and grounds for special events, wedding receptions, graduation parties, and more. Our two County Parks both have campground facilities with low nightly camping rates. 

Residential "curbside" recycling, and use of recycling sheds/containers are provided for residents only. Commercial recycling is not provided through the County, hewever we encourage your business to recycle, and are glad to help.
In addition to curbside collections, disposal of special materials (mattresses, car seats, electronic waste, etc.) is available to businesses and resident alike.

 Residents and businesses in the eight-County region may dispose of construction & demolition waste, regular garbage, and large garbage items. The landfill is also the collection point for other recyclable materials including metal, appliances, electronic waste, and tires.

 

Please refer to the attached documents for current prices related to the Environmental Department.

The Camden Regional Trail is a paved, multi-purpose recreational trail extending from Southwest Minnesota State University (SMSU) through the City of Marshall, and connecting area residents to Camden State Park. About 4 miles of paved trail connect adjacent campuses of Marshall High School and SMSU to a network of bike lanes in the City of Marshall. At the West end of Marshall, the paved trail covers 10 miles of gently rolling hills between Wayside Park (along MN HWY 23) to Camden State Park.

ADMINISTRATION

Lyon County manages Garvin Park (North of Garvin), and Twin Lakes Park (near Florence), and assists with maintenance of the Camden Regional Trail. Connecting to the Environment promotes a healthier lifestyle. Make a goal to visit a park this year. Your body will thank you.

Question: "Would you throw away your car if it still had value?" Of course not. Yet less than 50% of Lyon County residents recycle. We coordinate residential curbside recycling as well as recycling fluorescent, computer and TVs, mattresses & car seats. Don't see it on the list? Call to ask if it can be recycled. 

Some items do have to be thrown in the landfill, but ours in not like to old city dumps. We serve 8 Counties with our Regional Landfill that has a barrier to protect the groundwater, pumps and systems to manage rain water and landfill gasses, and daily practices to keep litter in control.

Our mission statement above is in line with our objectives to make wise financial choices, while at the same time advocating for protection of our local natural resources, and best management practices that protect the people in our region.
