A long term plan in the making
-- Get Out & Play --
The Pines is a 160 acre forest, owned by the city of Gary, located on the northeast corner of Highway 32 and 260th Ave. MnDOT reports over 1400 cars pass it each day. It is located 1/2 mile west, on 260th Ave. & 32, of the Aggasiz Recreational Trail (ART). It was planted in 1942 to help prevent the area from being a dust bowl. In partnership with the community, local organizations and granting bodies interested in the project, the City of Gary is working to design
and implement a plan to make the Pines not only sustainable, but a destination place for families, nature lovers, outdoor recreational enthusiasts, etc. to experience nature and make lasting memories.
