Introduction

The Village of Cottage Grove is undertaking a process to develop long-range plans (Master Plan) for the proposed public park (22 acre Park) and existing outlots in the Westlawn Estates subdivision. - See the map below for locations.

Proposed park amenities will be chosen based on the response of public and stakeholder involvement with guidance from Village Staff. The master plan will allow the village to plan for implementation and/or phasing of future improvements within the park as the surrounding development proceeds. 

The proposed 22-acre park will be planned as a community park. What is a community park? A community park is intended to serve the active and passive recreational needs of a number of neighborhoods or a medium-sized municipality. Community parks usually also offer areas for passive recreation use such as wooded areas and walking trails, scenic lookouts, botanical gardens, multiple shelters, grills, and picnic areas. Unique active use facilities could include a bandshell or aquatic facilities. Off-street parking areas for vehicles and bicycles, permanent restroom facilities, shower facilities, and lighting are common.

The park outlots will be neighborhood or pocket parks. Amenities in these parks will be focused more directly on serving the surrounding neighbors. Possible amenities typically include playground equipment, open shelters, and benches, among others.

Please take a few minutes to take this survey to help provide the Village with a starting point for the planning and design of these new amenities.
