The future Platte River Park sits on 52-acres with almost 1/3 mile of pristine, natural Platte River frontage and a rich diversity of habitats, from wetlands and swamp to forest and fields to a 10-acre blueberry farm. This stretch of river is prime habitat for trout and salmon.
Located adjacent to the Village of Honor, the park creates an easy public access point to the river, which currently does not exist. The property is is within a quarter mile walking or biking distance of housing, businesses and commercial areas.
The property will provide residents and visitors alike with a variety of recreational opportunities, including fishing, boating, access to various ecosystems and habitats, bird watching, picnicking and the simple pleasure of enjoying nature in all four seasons.
The Future Platte River Park
Platte River Park, from concept to acquisition – and now to long-term planning, development and maintenance – has been a true community collaboration. As soon as the property was acquired, we began a community planning process involving Homestead Township, the Village of Honor, and others to create a long-term (10-plus years), plan and timeline for developing Platte River Park.
