Lake Owasso County Park Phase II
Park & boat launch
The boat launch is now available for use by lakeshore owners on Wabasso and Owasso for removal of watercraft, docks and lifts. To avoid construction traffic, residents are encouraged to access the boat launch during the weekend if possible. Trailer parking is not available due to road and park construction. The boat launch and trailer parking lot will reopen following the conclusion of construction in November 2020.
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.
The reconstruction of Owasso Boulevard North and Phase II of the park improvements has started. The Owasso boat launch will periodically be closed July 6 - fall 2020. The Wabasso launch will remain closed for the 2020 season. During this time, no trailer parking will be available.
The project is broken into two main phases, with construction beginning at the west end of the Owasso Boulevard North corridor. Some limited excavation may take place in this area of the park. The second phase of the project will impact the east end of the road from Soo Street to the park. The last phase will be in the area of the park itself. Construction will go into the early fall.
