Coulee Dam surveying people on its parks


You still have a couple of days before your Coulee Dam park survey is due.

The town of Coulee Dam is taking a comprehensive park survey to determine the use of its parks and how and where the community would like to see improvements.

The survey is due at town hall on April 8, and if you don’t have a copy of the survey, there’s still time to get one and participate in it. Copies are available at town hall.

The survey is primarily for local residents, but outsiders are encouraged to fill out the survey, too.

Town Councilmember Gayle Swagerty, along with members of the Parks and Natural Resources Board, have taken on the task of getting the long view of the town’s parks.

Information from the survey will help the town develop a parks plan that points well into the future.

The survey will also assist the town in developing a maintenance plan for its parks.

Swagerty has told the council that the plan will enable the town to put in for grants to make some of the suggested improvements.

The survey is available in hard copy at town hall, or online at

The survey asks if you have taken advantage of the following parks, trails or facilities: Cole Park, Douglas Park, Mason City Memorial Park, Candy Point Trail and Crown Point, West Coulee Dam Historical Trail, Sandhill park and trails, and the Down River Trail.

A space in the survey asks you to rate the conditions of the parks, ranging from excellent to poor.

It also asks if you would be willing to be part of a parks cleanup event.

You’ve still got two days to take the survey.
