Carl W. Kroening Interpretive Center
The Carl W. Kroening Interpretive Center is within North Mississippi Regional Park and provides nature education and environmental learning for all ages. Hidden behind the Route 94 freeway wall, this regional park will captivate those lucky enough to stumble upon it. Walking trails meander through the prairie and along the shores of the river. Bike trails traverse the park and connect with Webber Parkway and commuter routes into downtown Minneapolis. There is a fishing pier in the extreme northern segment of the park. Further south, there is a play area featuring a wading pool, a state-of-the-art playground, and picnic tables, grills and shelters. A fishing pier and boat launch area are located in the southern part of the park.
