Over the next year, Dakota County is updating the 2003 Spring Lake Park Reserve Master Plan and creating a new Natural Resources Management Plan for the park.

The master plan will include a long range vision for the park, ten year priorities,  and will guide future decisions about park activities, investment, and natural resources restoration.  The Natural Resources Management Plan will address restoration priorities and provide near-term management recommendations.   A goal of both plans is to celebrate the rich cultural and natural heritage of the park.
