North Mississippi Regional Park
Hidden behind I-94, North Mississippi Regional Park will captivate those who venture off the freeway. This regional park offers spectacular views of the Mississippi River and the surrounding woods and prairie. Here you will find abundant wildlife in action: a Great Blue Heron nesting on an island, deer foraging, a beaver felling trees, and hawks and eagles soaring overhead. In summer, the prairie flowers provide ever-changing color.
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. South of 57th Avenue, the park provides additional amenities including the Carl W. Kroening Interpretive Center, a play area, wading pool, picnic tables, grills, shelters, a fishing pier and a boat launch. It is also a member of the Mississippi River Paddle Share program.
