Memory Lane Pond shoreline restoration

The Crystal Fund for Community Progress is heading up a successful shoreline demonstration project at Memory Lane Pond.  This project has been made possible in large part to funding received from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, along with a great deal of volunteer involvement with planting and maintenance.  The park is located near the intersection of 44th and Louisiana Ave North in Crystal, Minnesota.  Planting was done this last summer and some of the plants are already starting to blossom.  It will take a few years before the plants fully mature and the level of ongoing maintenance is reduced.

Last summer a stone platform for fishing was installed at this site.
