Twin Valley, MN -- The City of Twin Valley held their regular monthly meeting on Monday night, September 10th. At the meeting the council gave their support to move forward with a Splash Park Project. An online survey showed an overwhelming support from the community. After getting some more cost estimates, Twin Valley Mayor Ben Fall says the city will support it as long as the community can raise the money.

As for where the splash park would go, the top two options are the skating rink or at Harold’s Court on the northwest side of town. As of now, Mayor Fall says the most feasible option is Harold’s Court.

The Park and EDA Committee will be looking into fundraising options and cost estimates for a shelter as well.

Also at this week’s meeting it was made known that there are now a handful openings in the city owned Wimmer cabins. Mayor Fall says they are an affordable option for those who qualify.
