Legacy Funds may help city make improvements at DeLagoon camping areaPublished 12:25pm Tuesday, May 7, 2013
After much deliberation, the Fergus Falls Parks and Recreation Department is nearing the conclusion to improve the campground area at DeLagoon Park.
Last summer, the city’s finance committee discussed improvements of Pebble Lake’s swimming beach, a possible movement of the beach to DeLagoon and the intended improvements of the campground. The decision by the committee was to submit a plan that would improve these areas with the financing of Legacy Funds.
“We are planning on completing a Master Plan of Delagoon Camping Area this year, so we are eligible to submit to the Legacy Funds,” Fergus Falls Park and Rec. Director Steve Plaza said.
The plan looks to add water restrooms, showers, a dump station, an expansion of the area and to accommodate electrical needs of larger motor homes. The plan will be presented in front of the city council and will receive input from the community.
As to moving the swimming beach from Pebble Lake to DeLagoon, Plaza stated the he was unsure if there has been any progress towards movement, but the current plan does not address that issue.
