Lake George and Eastman Park Downtown St Cloud MN

Lake GeorgeFrom paddle boats to free plays by GREAT Theatre there is always something going on at Lake George in Downtown St Cloud Mn.

Lake George Laughter filled the air as children were running and playing in the splash pad, while the sound tech people were setting up for the play starting this Thursday evening at Eastman Park. A police officer waited for his next call in the parking lot and a guitarist sat in the shade of one of the many oaks strumming a tune from a seventies rock band. This is a quiet day in St Cloud at Lake George. On any given day you will find a multitude of people running, biking and jogging around the lake in downtown St Cloud.Lake George

Lake George is a 7 acre man-made lake stocked with catfish. The lake was created when the original lake in its place began to dry up as it was too shallow and it was basically just a 23 acre swamp area. The lake was dredged, reduced in size and the surrounding land turned into Eastman Park and recreation area.Lake George Restoration area  

Lake George and the surrounding Eastman Park are being preserved and restored as I write this post. The Lake George Shoreland Restoration Project began in 2002 when natural habitat was restored on the southern and western shoreline of the lake. Over a 2 year period over 400 students from St Cloud Tech helped plant 110 trees and over 1100 native grasses. If you go by the lake today you can see that there are still a few improvement projects in the works. The East Lake Boulevard Project is still in the process of being completed.East Lake Boulevard Project

In 2008 the Lake George Community Center opened in the site of the old changing house. The location of the old and deteriorating pool is now the location of the new splash pad. Bring a picnic basket and a good book, or your fishing rod and a hat, but wear sunscreen and know that it will be a fun day at Lake George and Eastman Park in downtown St Cloud MN.Lake George Community Center
