The county expects to open Beaver Ruin Wetlands Park to the public in early 2024. The 68.5-acre park will feature a playground, wildlife observation tower, trails, boardwalks and small shelters.
Forests and wetlands currently cover the property, most of which the county purchased in 2007. Officials plan to preserve and restore the wetlands, which it expects to complete in 2022. Construction of the park amenities is slated to begin in early 2023.
