This ISP does not include the trail improvements identified in the North Trail Study Area (TSA) for the foothills west and north of the lake.

Implementation of ISP Preferred Package of Actions

The City of Boulder’s Open Space Board of Trustees have recommended that Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) advance the preferred package of actions into detailed design and execution over the coming years. View an overview of the phased approach to implementation.

More detailed information on the proposed actions is available in the October Board Memo and presentation.

During their consideration of proposed Wonderland Lake actions, board members also recommended including a “learning laboratory approach” to education and restoration in the area to the preferred package of actions. Those opportunities would include service-learning and monitoring of water and land habitats in the unique area. The city manager, upon the board recommendation, also approved a community proposal to change the name of the entire Wonderland Lake area to Wonderland Lake Wildlife Sanctuary.
