Improvements Underway at Pleasant Prairie Park

Improvements Underway at Pleasant Prairie Park
Posted on 11/13/2021
Progress is underway on three parcels the Village acquired last year on the west end of Pleasant Prairie Park. The purchased property was primarily undeveloped and used to grow the park by an additional 4.4-acres, expanding the previously 22-acre community park to 26.4-acres.

Improvements on the west end of the park include grading, seeding, connectivity to 108th Avenue, and the Village’s first disc golf course. The moderately wooded beginner-level frisbee golf course has nine holes where players throw a disc at a target, using rules similar to golf.

The east end of the park has also received improvements. In October, two gravel parking areas in the park received asphalt pavement. The newly paved parking lots were part of the 2021 Paving Program. Construction crews completed the asphalt installation in under a week. The paved lots add to the park’s abundance of amenities, such as the youth soccer field, restrooms, playground area, open green space for recreational activities, basketball hoops, and tennis courts.

Additionally, the park will receive its first pavilion. Thanks to a project from Conrad Andersen, a Boy Scout of Troop 533, who is working towards an Eagle Scout rank. Plans for the pavilion received approval from the Pleasant Prairie Park Commission in October. The pavilion will be near the tennis and playground equipment, consisting of a 10-by-12 foot, four-post, wooden gazebo with a steel roof anchored to the ground by concrete cylinders.

Pleasant Prairie Park is a multi-use park located at Bain Station Road and 104th Avenue. The land acquisition supported the Pleasant Prairie Park expansion, outlined in the 2018 Park and Open Space Plan.
