Welcome to the Union Reservoir Recreational Master Plan and Interim Trail project website. Here you will find information about ongoing planning efforts to implement the Master Plan improvements and construct a trail at Union Reservoir.
Implementation of the Union Reservoir Recreational Master Plan and Trail project is on hold. In April 2013 a loop trail concept was presented to City Council. The loop trail was presented as an "interim trail" since it's intended to be installed prior to future expansion of the reservoir. Timing for reservoir expansion is currently unknown and is a long-term consideration. City Council directed staff to pursue an out-and-back/partial trail alignment on the west and south sides of the reservoir as opposed to a full loop around the reservoir due to environmental, agricultural and private property impacts. Design and implementation of trails and recreational improvements at Union Reservoir is currently unfunded.
Project is unfunded.
