Located just 15 minutes south of St. Paul in Inver Grove Heights, Heritage Village Park is a 50-acre site on the banks of the Mississippi River. N ow owned by the City of Inver Grove Heights, the site was a former rail yard until the mid-1980s . In 2004, a master plan for the site was prepared that would transform the site from a contaminated waste site, locally used for dumping trash, to a community amenity featuring recreational, cultural, and natural attractions, including abundant natural areas, playgrounds a bike path and more.
Volunteers will work along side FMR staff to collect native prairie grass seed and cut cottonwood seedlings. This native grass seed will be replanted at Heritage Village Park and neighboring Rock Island Swing Bridge Park. Volunteers may also be asked to participate in other restoration tasks that are needed to help improve this site.
