Crews Turning Clear Lake Shoreline Into Public Area


Clear Lake, Iowa (AP) – Crews have begun turning an overgrown stretch of Clear Lake’s shoreline into a public access area.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has already begun work on the stretch of shoreline, which will be transformed into a day-use area for grill-outs, picnics and a stop for bikers and walkers.

Crews have cleared brush and plan to place basketball-sized rocks along the 160 feet of shoreline, raise and seed the newly cleared site and move in picnic tables and grills.

The department’s wildlife bureau previously oversaw the little-used part of Lekwa Marsh Wildlife Management Area. Its parks department will now be in charge of the site.

The department hopes to have the area complete by mid-summer.
