Brushy Creek State Park
No matter the season, Brushy Creek State Park is the destination for lovers of the great outdoors. From boating in the summer to cross-country skiing in the winter, the park has an activity for everyone. Most notable, however, is Brushy Creek's extensive trail system. Over 40 miles of multi-purpose trail intertwine over the park's extensive 6,000 acres. Over the years, REAP funding has expanded the property, contributed to lake construction and added trail routes.
REAP funding for this project: $7,953,582
Total REAP investment in Region 5: $17,113,494
