May 25, 2021

The Three Rivers Park District Board of Commissioners has approved the draft master plan for the Eagle Lake and Bryant Lake Regional Trails and authorized a 30-day public comment period for the plan.

Three Rivers Park District’s 2040 System Plan identifies a north-south regional trail search corridor between Elm Creek Park Reserve and the Carver County Regional Trail System that will connect Eagle Lake, French and Bryant Lake Regional Parks. This master plan focuses on the planned 17-mile trail section between Eagle Lake and Bryant Lake Regional Parks.

The Eagle Lake Regional Trail, as proposed in the draft master plan, will travel from Eagle Lake Regional Park to the Lake Minnetonka Regional Trail with connections to French Regional Park and the Bassett Creek, Medicine Lake and Luce Line Regional Trails through the cities of Maple Grove, Plymouth and Minnetonka.

The Bryant Lake Regional Trail will travel from the Lake Minnetonka Regional Trail to Bryant Lake Regional Park with a connection to the Minnesota River Bluffs Regional Trail through the cities of Minnetonka and Eden Prairie.

The public can provide comments about the master plan through June 23. The master plan is available at Let’s Talk Three Rivers.
