Lake Brophy Park is located in LaGrande Township of Douglas County,
Minnesota. From Alexandria, go west on County Highway 82 approximately
3 1\2 miles to the park entrance.
WHAT IS THE
Lake Brophy Park was originally constructed as a wayside rest on U.S.
Highway 52. When the highway was turned back to the local road authority,
the park came along with it.
examples of fine cut stone craftsmanship remain in the park, leftovers
from the depression era work programs of the 1930's and 40's. In 1988,
a group of homeowners living near the the lake organized an improvement
project. Playground equipment, permanent tables, and a picnic shelter
were installed. Other service projects have been carried out by Eagle
Scout candidates and community service groups. A renovation of the park
playground will be completed in the spring of 2002.
The park is a little under 6 acres with 1200 feet
of pristine shoreline on a fine fishing lake. A popular spot for summer
afternoon picnics, Lake Brophy Park's shelter can accommodate groups of
about 25 people nicely.
