The Park

We found this 40 acre property in April 2020 and secured it on July 3, 2020 for play, organic agriculture, art and community living. The park portion (35 acres) will be accessible to the public and operated with use agreements for the specifically identified activity areas. Each area will be managed by the clubs or groups of community citizens interested in spearheading their desired community asset. For example, Driftless United Athletics will manage the soccer fields and a citizen orchard group may manage ½ acre of orchard trees. The clubs or citizen groups will create and manage that section of the park. Over time the activities in the park will evolve to include more activities than listed. Taxes, insurance and maintanance will be partially funded by special events and camping fees.

Vision

After the park infrastructure is developed, our vision may evolve. That's why we've allocated more shares than our current budget needs. 

 

We're open to your ideas.

If you're curious about investing in the future of PrairieWind Park, learn more on our Invest with Us page.

Building the Vision

In fall of 2020, Thompson Dirtworks began excavating our 5-acre athletic fields, even working until December 23. 

In summer of 2021, we built the road and parking lot. 

In fall of 2021, we built the outdoor living room.

Help us build out the vision. Visit the Invest with Us page.
