Temporary boardwalk trail added at Hyland Park Reserve

Bloomington has a new boardwalk on the northwest side of Hyland Lake Park Reserve. Three Rivers Park District constructed the boardwalk above the paved trail along East Bush Lake Road to provide users access over water-prone areas. In recent years, rainfall increased the water level of Goose Nest Pond and caused flooding along East Bush Lake Road near Bush Lake Beach.

A recent study looked into flooding issues at Hyland Park Reserve. Goose Nest Pond was of particular concern. The study’s findings will help guide future flooding measures. The boardwalk is considered temporary and Three Rivers Park District must develop a plan for a permanent solution for use of the park trail during high water conditions by June 2022.

The paved trail by Goose Nest Pond connects to City trails by the entrance of Bush Lake Beach, 9140 E. Bush Lake Road.
