The river bluffs near Belle Plaine offer scenic views of the Minnesota River. A future regional park is planned for Blakeley Township.

A future park reserve planned along the Minnesota River bluffs in Blakeley Township received a boost from the Metropolitan Council last month.

The council’s grant, totaling $25,650, will support Scott County’s acquisition of a 15-acre floodplain forest planned to be within the future park reserve’s boundary.
