Welcome to the Lakeview Legacy Park website!  We are Citizens for Lakeview Preservation, Inc., a non-profit volunteer group seeking to create something new in Orono – a POPS – privately-owned public space – unlike any other in the Twin Cities area.   While a privately-owned public space is not a new concept, Lakeview Legacy Park will be unique in its combination of nature preservation and enhancement, education, and historical perspective – all made possible by the collective efforts of people like you who share these values.

We encourage you to explore our website – learn more ABOUT US, about THE STORY that led us to where we are, THE PARK that we hope to create, NEWS we want to share, and an opportunity to CONTACT US with questions, ideas, or an interest in donating or volunteering.

To realize this vision, Citizens for Lakeview Preservation, Inc. is seeking to raise $250,000 from individuals, businesses, and grants to make this POPS a reality not only today, but  in perpetuity. The opportunity to create a new park through private initiative  does not happen often. If you would like to be part of this effort please consider a donation.
