Mississippi Gateway Regional Park

Mississippi Gateway Regional Park (formerly Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park) provides a variety of opportunities for outdoor exploration and adventure. This unique park is defined by the Mississippi River and features 160 acres of amazing scenery to bike, hike, fish and more. From the 12-foot-wide observation walkway on top of the dam, enjoy spectacular views and the roar of the water. Follow more than two miles of trails along the banks of the river and disappear into the beauty and quiet of nature. Rent a single or tandem kayak through the Mississippi River Paddle Share Program and look for signs of abundant wildlife, such as mink, beaver, hawks, osprey and river otters. In winter, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are popular activities here.
