Residents of Pierz will be able to see and hear about the city’s long-range plans for expanding and updating its city park during an open house.

At its Monday meeting, the Pierz Council set the date for Wednesday, May 26, at 7 p.m., after looking over a concept drawing of the master plan by Short Elliott Hendrickson.

The master plan, which has not been finalized, includes several amenities that can be accomplished in the short term at a minimal expense. These include a dog park, a sledding hill, updates to the basketball and volleyball courts, to name a few.

Then, there are larger projects that can be accomplished in phases. These include such things as a winter ice skating facility complete with an open skating rink, a hockey rink with boards, and a warming house, as well as expanding the current nine-hole golf course into an 18-hole course.

The golf course would be expanded on 61 acres of land purchased by the city in December 2016, which is located south of the current course.

Plans also include a disc golf course, improvements to the current campground, expansion of the campground, relocating the playground and improvements to the existing horseshoe facilities, cart storage shed with a cart path to the clubhouse, a new parking lot, walking/biking trails and more.
