Planning to dredge and reconstruct the lake at Sharon Woods has been underway since 2017.

There will be a public information open house Wednesday to answer any questions people may have about the project.

Starting this summer or fall, Great Parks will begin draining the 35-acre lake.

Bret Henninger, chief operating officer of Great Parks, said that the construction operations will take about a year.

Once complete, estimated around fall 2024 or spring 2025, it could take several months for the lake to re-fill naturally with rainwater.

The lake was last dredged and cleaned in the 1980s, according to Great Parks.
