Sand Pits Dedication April 20
A dedication of Muscatine County’s newest recreation area, the Sand Pits, will be held on Saturday, April 20 at 10:00 a.m. The ceremony will be held at the Pettibone Avenue entrance.
This 435-acre former quarry was donated to the Muscatine County Conservation Board in December by the Chris Rayburn Family of the W.G. Block Company to be used for public recreation. The Rayburn Family will be on hand for the dedication and to reveal the new name for the area.
The area opens to the public on April 20 at 6:00 a.m. For more information contact the Conservation Board at (563) 264-5922.
