  • Sharon Lake Improvement

    If you’ve seen a green covering over Sharon Lake, it’s not algae; it’s duckweed, one of the smallest flowering plants in the world. This plant is taking advantage nutrients in the sediment at the bottom of the lake.

    Great Parks is in the process of improving the health of the lake and surrounding habitats. While it is an extensive project, enhancing the lake will improve water quality, preserve local wildlife and offer park guests the best recreation opportunities.
