Hassan park to be dedicated Oct. 15

Hassan Meadows Park, located on Bechtold Road a quarter of a mile north of 109th Avenue North (CSAH 117), will be dedicated today (Saturday, Oct. 15) at 10 a.m. The public is invited and refreshments will be available.

The park features a hiking/biking trail that connects in two places with the existing trail in the Three Rivers Estates subdivision, making a large loop. The trail also connects with the roadside trail on 109th Avenue North.

This summer, the park was improved with a picnic pavilion, a basketball half-court, a sand volleyball court, a ball field for children and parking facilities. Yet to come is a Frisbee golf course that will extend along and either side of the Xcel Energy pole line that runs through the park.

Funds for the park improvement came from the per-lot fees paid by developers.
