Lake Darling State Park Reopens

BRIGHTON, IA (AP) - Lake Darling State Park has reopened after around six years of restoration work in southeast Iowa's Washington County.

The $16 million project began in 2008 and included draining the 300-acre lake and replacing a dam. The park now has new roads, handicapped-accessible fishing piers and a lodge.

The refilling of the lake began in February and was completed earlier than expect. A group campsite remains to be finished.

Lake Darling is named for J.N. "Ding" Darling, a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist and noted conservationist. Darling dedicated the park on Sept. 17, 1950.

The park sits about three miles west-northwest of Brighton.
