The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board says renovation of the Lake of the Isles continues this fall with south shoreline renovation, pedestrian path reconstruction, retaining wall reinforcement, and installation of concrete bench pads, stone access points and the relocation of canoe racks on the south shore.
In a prepared statement, the Board said all existing vegetation must be removed from the south shore before it can be stabilized. Most of the vegetation there now is from invasive species. Almost all this work has been done, though some vegetation near the canoe racks still exists.
Crews are paving the pedestrian trail, beginning on the east end of the lake. They will continue around the water until the trail has been entirely repaved.
