Olmsted County, Regional Park

Regional Park

Description:

The county recently acquired the 90-acre parcel for a new regional park. The park is located in a very scenic and geologically unique portion of the Root River Valley. The area is also historically significant because the old Dubuque to St. Paul stagecoach road transects the property. The park is adjacent to 263 acres of public property owned by the DNR Division of Forestry. Future recreational activities may include picnicking, camping, hiking, fishing, canoeing, and interpretive trails and cross county ski trails.
