The city of Bloomington is set to restore and pave a three-mile stretch of bike trails in the Bush lake area, according to the Star Tribune.
The project to restore portions of the 20-year-old trails will cost $902,705, paid for by various Metropolitan Council recreational grants.
Bush Lake is only the second most popular park in the area, according to the Star Tribune. The distinction for first place, garnering anywhere from 325,00 to 350,000 users annually, belongs to Normandale Lake park. Normandale Lake was voted as the No. 4 picnic area in Minnesota, according to WCCO News.
The city said it hopes to encircle the entire lake with trails one day, but the Star Tribune said that likely won't happen any time soon, as residents still own private property along portions of the shore. It's also a popular swimming beach and fishing area for local residents.
