Eagles congregate between Red Wing and Wabasha Minnesota in the winter as there are various places where the Mississippi River does not freeze over, and these are places where eagles can fish. Just north of Lake Pepin, we found dozens of eagles in December. This time we saw four on the way to Red Wing and a couple in the... More

Stopped by for an hour or more for our 6 year old grandaughter to play. She loved it and says it's a 5 ster playground. We enjoyed walking along the river and watched a barge head down the river. The gardens were still pretty even though it was late October. I would love o return in the summer.

They have done a great job with this lovely park- It has been there as long as we can remember, but they have done an awesome job updating and building an extensive, super fun play area for young ones. However, even for everyone the pathways and views are beautiful. Worth the stop, or take a picnic!

We walked for hours enjoying the fall art festival in downtown Red Wing and went down to the river to enjoy the view. There is a large playground for children, swings and benches along the river, a bike/walking trail and a large grassy area. A lot of people were walking their dogs so dogs are welcome into the park. There... More

We sat and watched a barge go down the river. It is a great place for taking sunset pictures. Take some food and have a picnic here. Picnic tables are available throughout the park. Your kids will love the playground. There is an outdoor community pool here that is open during the summer. Winter brings the Bald Eagles so bring... More

First thoughts upon arrival is a kids park with a boat dock because it sits right off the river. Well behold as you drive around towards the back there's a mini water park. Surprisingly this place was all fun for the size of it. With two water slides (big enough for adults) a kiddie section and a diving board into... More

We played at the playground for 2 hours, had a picnic and watched the boats go by, and met friends and family at the waterpark for 5 hours. Everyone had a great time. Just far enough away from the twin cities that it seemed like a get away vacation. Slides at waterpark are for 48" plus. 6 year old son... More
