The South St. Paul City Council has approved the hire of Veit & Company to construct Phase 2 of Kaposia Landing. Construction of new park amenities will begin in May 2020 including: expanded parking areas, new off-street trails connecting to existing trails, parking areas, and ball fields, solar lighting for parking areas, off-leash dog area, and roadway, stormwater management, resurfacing of Metzen Parkway, and landscaping including trees and native vegetation. A play container will also be built during the project for a future playground structure. The construction contract awarded is $1,070,091 funded in part by a $612,700 grant from the Dakota County Environmental Legacy Fund. Kaposia Landing is an 87-acre park on the Mississippi River developed on a former demolition landfill. Opened in 2008, the park offers large and specialty off-leash dog areas (annual pass required for use), river overlooks and nearly two miles of paved trails. Phase 1 was completed in 2017 including five athletic fields for softball and baseball, a concession/restroom building and parking. Phase 2 is estimated to be completed by September, 2020.
