Pigs Eye Lake Master Plan

Contact us

The Pigs Eye master plan will address phased natural resource improvements for the Pigs Eye Lake island building project, other natural resource activities and public protection for the Ramsey County section of Pigs Eye Lake. 


Due to the timing for implementation of the islands within the Pigs Eye section, two master plan amendments are happening concurrently for Battle Creek Regional Park.

Battle Creek Regional Park – Master Plan Amendment

The overall Battle Creek Regional Park Master Plan Amendment will cover the entire regional park for both natural resource and recreation improvements. The approximate completion date is spring 2021.

Pigs Eye Master Plan Amendment

The separate Pigs Eye Lake master plan amendment will focus on natural resource projects and will ultimately get absorbed into the overall plan since it will be completed prior to the larger Battle Creek Regional Park Master Plan Amendment. This master plan update is a requirement of the Metropolitan Council as the overseer of the regional park and trails system. The approximate completion date is fall 2020.
