The city of Waconia maintains acres of turf in public parks, open space and rights-of-way throughout the community. Now the city is converting some of that turf to more native landscape through the Carver County Water Management Organization’s “turf to native” program.

Waconia recently received grants to support a conversion of five locations to native: a steep slope at Cedar Point Park along Lake Waconia; two locations near Public Services facilities on East 10th Street; open space and lift station at Interlaken Court; and a steep slope in the Interlaken Development near Stone Gate and the Highway 10 underpass.
