The Rich Valley Greenway is a proposed regional trail and open space corridor that will provide a link between Lebanon Hills Regional Park and the Mississippi River in central Dakota County. The greenway will provide recreation for residents of Eagan and Inver Grove Heights and serve as a destination trail for the larger surrounding area.
The 5-mile corridor stretches east and west within the cities of Eagan and Inver Grove Heights. The proposed corridor’s surrounding land use includes primarily single-family residential neighborhoods and rural, undeveloped open space.
A master plan is being developed that will:
- Identify the preferred trail and greenway alignment
- Envision improvements to water quality, habitat, recreation, and non-motorized transportation along the corridor
- Provide strategies for interpretation, resource stewardship, development, land acquisition, and operations
- Estimate project costs
- Satisfy requirements for Metropolitan Council regional destination trail and greenway planning.
