VILLAGE RECEIVES LAND DONATION FOR FUTURE PARK - LAND WILL BECOME KNOWN AS SORENSEN WOODS AT KILDEER FARM
In mid-November, the Village of Pleasant Prairie received a land donation that will become part of a future Village park. Pleasant Prairie resident, Jay R. Sorensen, donated 6.56 acres of wooded oak savanna to the Village with the intention of having the land preserved, protected, and restored with walking trails for future use as a public, scenic park area. The property will become known as Sorensen Woods at Kildeer Farm. The land is located on the west side of the 11400 block of 47th Avenue and is valued at $286,000. Sorensen Woods at Kildeer Farm will remain in the Village's ownership permanently for use as part of the future Kildeer Park. Mr. Sorensen wishes to see the wooded lands preserved and walking trails on the land enhanced.
Mr. Sorensen is a lifelong resident of Pleasant Prairie and has been an active farmer in the Village for more than 40 years. He recently acquired a large property near 116th Street and 47th Avenue for the purpose of continuing his life’s work. Because of the significant woodland and scenic area on the property, Mr. Sorensen wished for this portion of the land he purchased to be preserved permanently in order to maintain the natural beauty of the area.
