Isanti County – John and Irving Anderson Park

In 2015 we began working with the county parks director, Barry Wendorf, to acquire a critical parcel on the east side of the park. This addition, unlike the rest of the park, has remained in a natural state throughout its history.

Sealing the deal on this land was less than certain, despite everyone’s understanding of how crucial it would be for the park. The roadblocks came in the form of the county’s lack of funds and staff resources to coordinate land acquisitions. Plus this land was owned by four individuals, which adds complexity to the transaction, and they wanted to move quicker than the county could move.

“For the Parks & Trails Council to come in with the funds and expertise to quickly and smoothly handle this, it’s beyond beneficial to a small county like us,” said Wendorf. It could easily have been sold for lake home development as it has the potential for up to eight lots on the lake. That would have been a big loss to the park to see the adjacent land transformed in nearly the opposite way as the current parkland.

It was a lengthy process to restore the current parkland, requiring special equipment and several rounds of successfully requesting funds from the legislature. “Now here is this adjacent land that’s already pristine and with a landowner who wants to sell; this is exactly why Parks & Trails Council has a land fund,” explained Brett Feldman, Parks & Trails Council’s executive director.

This addition extends the park’s eastern boundary into a strip of land that straddles two clear, shallow lakes. It doubles the amount of park shoreline to 3,000 feet on Horseshoe and 3,300 feet on Horseleg Lake with the potential for a short portage trail to be created between the two. This provide the only public access to Horeshoe Lake. Both these lakes are largely undeveloped with little to no motorized use and providing excellent habitat for waterfowl.

The land has gone through several generations of the same family with additional investors added later. In the 1930s the land was used for breeding foxes, which were most likely used for their pelts. There are still some rows of cages on the property. But those are the only structures on the land. Since the 1950s the land has been used as hunting grounds with ducks and turkey being prime wildlife in the area. The land is mostly high ground that’s a mix of hardwood forest and native prairie with some wetlands.

The Friends of Anderson Park raised $49,154.88 to assist in the purchase.

The City of Isanti envisions a park, trail and natural resource system that will not only enhance the quality of life for its current residents; but will create a system that can be easily built upon in the future as Isanti continues to grow. Because people experience park amenities differently, Isanti has strived to have a variety of park systems that encourages health benefits from the small neighborhood park to natural open spaces.

Isanti has 179 acres of park land, recreation and natural resource areas within City limits; there are also over 29 miles of trails and walkways. While Bluebird Park represents the largest park with almost half of the total park land, 65 acres, and home to recreation amenities such as a nine field soccer complex, indoor BMX track, skate park and ball field; there are nine other city parks for residents and the community to enjoy. All the parks and facilities, 19 in total, offer not only recreational play areas but also at total of 15 play structures, many swing sets, play apparatus, numerous resting benches and an abundance of picnic tables.
