Lake Stickney Community Park

About


Lake Stickney Park is 24.5 acre park that preserves vital habitat at the northern headwaters of Swamp Creek.  The park contains diverse forest, wetland, stream and open-water habitat for fish and wildlife.  Amenities include walking trails, parking, portable restroom and a fully-fenced off-leash dog area. Planning for additional park improvements is currently underway— please see the current projects page for more information.

Park History


Lake Stickney Park was acquired through multiple purchases made between 2008 & 2016.  Acquisitions were completed with strong local support.  Community groups including the Lake Stickney Community Club and the Lake Stickney Conservancy played a vital role in establishment of the park.  Acquisitions were funded by the county Conservation Futures Program and private party donations.  Following acquisition, demolition of existing structures and extensive cleanup was performed on the site— with a significant amount of the cleanup work completed by volunteers and community partners.
