Crystal MAC Nature Area Boardwalk Construction

The City of Crystal, the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) and Three Rivers Park District are partnering to make improvements to the Crystal MAC Nature Area boardwalk. In the winter of 2021-2022, 485 feet of boardwalk will be built, replacing a section of boardwalk that has deteriorated with age. This project is a continuation of the Phase 1 boardwalk that was constructed in the winter of 2018-2019. View a map of the boardwalk showing the project phases.

The City of Crystal has started to remove the existing boardwalk section within the Phase 2 project area, and installation of helical piles to support the new boardwalk is scheduled to start the week of February 7.

The trail will be closed until the project is completed. For more information, visit the City of Crystal’s Park Projects page.
