Striving for the Betterment of the Lake Marion Community
Within the Lake Marion Association, community wellbeing is at the forefront of what we’re working together towards. Our efforts and activities are designed to be a catalyst for keeping our lake, parks, and the lands that surround them clean and safe. Our Association's efforts aid in providing pristine outdoor spaces that inspire a healthy and active lifestyle for our community. We invite you to learn more about the positive impact we have here in Lakeville, and join us in bringing about positive change.
Lake Marion Association at a Glance
Here at the Lake Marion Association, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making our community a better place. Your membership makes it possible to maintain a clean, healthy and safe lake, for all to enjoy. Additionally, our Association works on projects such as property and trail development, including the Juno Trailway, which surrounds Lake Marion.
Making A Difference
Our Association works to keep Lake Marion free of aquatic invasive species. "Invasive species are species that are not native to Minnesota and cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health." (MN, DNR 2018). Through education, prevention and intervention if necessary, the Lake Marion Assocation works to keep our lake healthy for all.
The Association's slogan is "Striving for the betterment of the Lake Marion community." Another way in which we work to be of service is by actively promoting parkland and trail development around Lake Marion. These trails systems provide a safe, convenient, and beautiful way for members of the community to stay active and enjoy the beauty of our lake, on and off the water.
Community Clean Up
Lake Marion Association organizes periodic community clean up efforts to keep our parks litter and debris free. This is a simple, but impactful way we strive to be good stewards of the community spaces within Lakeville.
Buoys are important in keeping Lake Marion safe for boaters, swimmers, and those enjoying the lake on non-motorized watercraft. The Lake Marion Association ensures that buoys are placed at appropriate intervals around the lake, encouraging safety and responsibility on and in the water.
