Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Look for another addition to a popular Rochester park.

The city has been adding features to Cascade Lake Regional Park in recent years, including trails and a swimming beach.

Coming next will be a fishing pier.

It will be constructed on the south side of the lake, west of the beach.

The plan is to have it ready for public use this year.

Under an agreement with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the state will provide and install the pier. The city Parks Dept. will provide an accessible pathway and other shoreline improvements needed to connect the pier to the shore.
