Lake Owasso County Park Phase II

Contact us

This project represents the continuation of the Phase I County redevelopment of Lake Owasso County Park construction. The city of Shoreview has planned a full reconstruction of Owasso Boulevard North between Soo Street and Victoria Street, and will continue on to the second phase of construction of the park. The park will be closed during construction, and access to the boat launches may be interrupted. 

In 2020, work will continue closer to the park, with the work in or adjacent to the park beginning mid-summer. This work will include reconstruction of the Owasso boat launch, stormwater improvements, reconstruction of the parking lot on the beach side along the road, trails, sidewalks, crosswalk construction and utility work.

Visit the city of Shoreview’s website for more information about the Owasso Boulevard North reconstruction project.

Project status

Concrete barriers will be placed at the Lake Wabasso parking lot and access in November 2019 to prevent traffic from entering the newly constructed parking areas until the project’s completion. The Lake Owasso boat launch should be accessible until the contractor begins work on the parking lot, with closures planned at certain times to allow for reconstruction.
