Carver Lake Park
3175 Century Avenue South
The construction project started at the end of August 2020. The park reopened to all users Monday, Nov. 9. Striping will be completed in the spring.

The main components of the project include repaving and a minor redesign of the main parking lot and road, an expanded parking lot by the new bike park playground, adding an electronic gate at the main road entrance, and enhancing the pedestrian crossings for paved trail and off-road cycling trail users. Paved trails in the park were repaved in advance of the larger parking lot reconstruction project. (Please note: In the concept plan, a picnic shelter is featured. This is not included in this improvement project, but will be including in a future project.) View the Carver Lake Park concept plan.

Valley Creek Park Master Plan

Valley Creek Park is an undeveloped 70 acre community park in Woodbury, and is part of a larger area known as the Fish Lake Greenway Corridor. This property is part of a larger collection of city owned open space and park parcels that were acquired through a city open space referendum in 1998, park dedication from development, a state Metro Greenways Grant from the MNDNR, and a Land and Water Legacy Grant from Washington County.

The open space is a mixture of oak woodland, coniferous tree plantation and retired agricultural fields. Significant investment has been made since 2006 regarding the active vegetation management of this area with prairie and oak savannah restoration. Construction of this project will be complete at the end of 2021.
