The Honor Area Restoration Project (HARP,) a 501 (C) (3) nonprofit was formed by diverse group of local residents, united in a love for the area and a desire to see it prosper. Their work includes preserving the history and protecting local resources; encouraging informed growth and development and promoting fiscal, recreational, and educational initiatives that benefit all citizens. A big part of HARP’s plan is to showcase the scenic Platte River by creating the Platte River Park,
The Future Platte River Park
Platte River Park, from concept to acquisition – and now to long-term planning, development and maintenance – has been a true community collaboration. As soon as the property was acquired, the community planning process began, involving Homestead Township, the Village of Honor, and others to create a 10-plus years plan, and timeline for developing Platte River Park.
The future Platte River Park encompasses a unique 52-acre plot with almost 1/3 mile of pristine Platte River frontage. The rich diversity of habitats – wetlands and swamp to forest and fields – is prime habitat for trout and salmon., it also includes a 10-acre former blueberry farm.
Just 1/4 mile from the center of the Village of Honor, the park will offer easy public access to the river, and will provide residents and visitors alike with a variety of recreational opportunities including fishing, boating, access to various ecosystems and habitats, bird watching, picnicking and the simple pleasure of enjoying nature in all four seasons.
