You don’t need to travel out of the Twin Cities to experience nature! Our regional parks system spans the entire metro area and have over 64 parks and 400 miles of trails. In the Twin Cities, you can get to any of our parks within an hour.

The parks and trails are a nature-based system with a focus on preservation. And we offer all sorts of fun activities for everyone!

There’s a reason why our parks have more annual visits than the Mall of America. In regional parks, you can go on scenic hikes and have a family barbecue on the same day.
