Johnston’s Terra Park project receives $50,000 from Prairie Meadows
The city of Johnston will receive $50,000 from Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino for an open-air amphitheater at the city’s $4.4 million Terra Park project. In addition to the amphitheater, the park will include an eight-acre fishing lake, a picnic pavilion, smaller shelters, a fishing pier, trails, children’s play structures that will be handicap accessible, and numerous native plantings, according to a release. Plans are also in the works for an addition to the adjacent Crown Point Community Center that will add more programming space for the city’s senior programs and introduce new outdoor educational and experiential learning programs. In addition, soft trails will be developed within the adjacent Beaver Creek Natural Resources Area to accommodate walkers and runners who want to get off the hard trails.
