Johnston city officials broke ground on a massive new lake and recreation project Friday.

It will likely be another three years before Terra Lake is ready for the public but you don't have to wait until then to know what it will look like.

The architects behind the project released a 3-D computer animation giving a virtual tool of what awaits in 2017.

The 200 acre park will include an eight-acre lake, fishing pier, trails, playgrounds and shelter.

The project will cost $5.4 million.
