Several unique amenities have been designed into the park, and either exist, or will be constructed as the business park develops. Green space is located throughout the business park. These green-spaces are typically ponds, wetland features, and native prairie plantings providing an attractive backdrop for buildings.
Moraine View Park
Moraine View Park is located near the center of the business park. Currently the park houses the city soccer fields and community gardens. Bike trails run through the park from the north, west, and south, connecting to a city-wide system of trails linking neighborhoods to employment centers. Future plans include the addition of a playground and picnic facilities for the community to enjoy..
