Parks & Recreation

The Parks & Recreation department strives to provide exceptional parks, trails and recreational opportunities. We offer 62 parks, 118.4 miles of pedestrian and bike trails and diverse recreational opportunities for all ages.

With all Lakeville has to offer, it’s no wonder so many special events take place in its parks and recreational facilities.

202nd Street (County Road 50) Reconstruction

Dakota County, in partnership with the City of Lakeville, is reconstructing 202nd Street to a 2-lane divided roadway from Holyoke Avenue to Cedar Avenue. The project includes a roundabout at 202nd Street and Holyoke Avenue and improvements to Aronson Park, including relocating park access to align with Heath Avenue and more.

Phase 1: April to July 10, 2019 - COMPLETED

Phase 2: July 22-November 2019
County Road 50 will be closed to all traffic from just east of the Highview Avenue intersection to Cedar Avenue during this time. Phase 2 is tentatively scheduled to be completed on November 1. 

Access to Aronson and Quigley-Sime Parks will be at Highview Avenue only. Entry into Aronson Park will be provided through a roadway from Quigley-Sime Park. Detour signs to the parks will be in place during construction.

The posted detour for County Road 50 traffic is Cedar Avenue south to County Road 70, then north on Dodd Boulevard. Detour signs will be in place during construction.
