"I cannot believe what a difference less than one year makes," said Lisa Niles of the Little Muskego Lake Association (LMLA).
Referring to the transformation of the shoreline at Idle Isle Park, before and after pictures do show a vast improvement from the overgrown grasses and weeds that had greeted boaters and swimmers there.
Most recently, the LMLA donated a sign valued at $2,000 to upgrade the look of the older, green sign that had listed the rules and regulations. It was installed late last week.
"This was really a joint effort with LMLA and the Muskego Park and Rec Department," Niles said. "In addition, all plants were donated by Shady Acres, Steins, Gingerbread House, Muskego Liquor, Cousins, and various other donors."
As happened during where the shoreline was overhauled to eliminate the overgrowth, all work was done by volunteers from the LMLA, as well as Cub scouts and "lake friends," according to Niles.
She said that they will continue to work on projects, the next of which will be a is a boat rinse station at the launch area. The group plans on a total of five years' worth of projects on the seven-acre island, which features public picnic areas, fishing dock, boat launch and public swimming area on Little Muskego Lake.
