The Grass is Always Greener in Prior Lake
While it’s no secret that Prior Lake is a great place to live, it’s much more than meets the eye!
The city of Prior Lake is abundant with beautiful land and water features. The town features many recreational amenities including more than 55 parks on 1,000 acres, over 100 miles of trails and sidewalks and 14 lakes. Taken together, the parks and lakes offer a wide variety of outdoor opportunities for residents with a wide variety of interests.
Prior Lake also does a great job of keeping their beautiful landscape green and their water clean! Every April, they conduct an annual Curbside Recycling Event that offers curbside pickup for the entire month for residents of Prior Lake, Spring Lake Township, and Credit River Township. The town also makes sure to sweep their roads consistently to prevent garbage and dirt from contaminating the lake! They also conduct an event called Dive the Lake- Lake Clean Up, in which SCUBA divers from around the Prior Lake area work together to dive deep in the lake and clean up pollutants and debris. Items that have been found in the past include car tires, boat motors, and many other things that could be very dangerous for the lake’s health if not removed. These events prove the point that the grass is always greener and the water is always cleaner in Prior Lake!
