by Your Alaska Link News Team

A grand opening is planned Friday evening for a new recreation area in Fairbanks.

Reports say the ceremony is planned from 5-8 p.m. at the Tanana Lakes Recreation Area at the end of South Cushman Street.

The 750-acre park cost the Fairbanks North Star Borough Parks and Recreation Department more than $3 million to build.

It includes a swimming beach covering nearly 5 acres, a picnic area, a boat launch with access to the Tanana River and lakes for both motorized and non-motorized uses.

There's no admission fee to the park.
