Acquire the 159 acres of restored blufflands that Parks & Trails Council purchased and is holding in trust for the park.
At the border of Frontenac State Park, near it’s entrance, lays land that holds outstanding natural beauty and a view to behold. In 2017 the owner put the land up for sale, thus presenting a small window of opportunity to protect this land for future generations to enjoy as part of the park. Parks & Trails Council began discussions right away, knowing that if the landowner sold to a private entity that would likely put an end to any future use as parkland, perhaps forever. This land holds a bluff overlooking the Pleasant Valley Creek and Lakelet as well as restored prairie and oak savanna lands.
While the beauty and location of this land makes it a natural addition for the park, it is currently outside the statutory boundary of the park. As such Parks & Trails Council is dedicated to leading the effort to incorporate this land into the boundary and park ownership.
