The trail is not very long, around 4-5 km but it is well groomed and will lighted so you can ski up to 9:30PM at nite. I enjoy skiing here as it is so convenient and close to my home. Parking is abundant and I have never had an issue with that. There is no artificial snow so trail quality... More

French Park in Plymouth, MN is a gem! With miles of waking trails, kayaking, canoeing and rowing on the lake it is an oasis! We visit the park daily, all year round, winter, spring, summer and fall. The Park is free of charge to enter, and you can walk, boat, canoe, ski, etc. The prices for renting kayaking/canoe and row... More

The park has a great sledding hill, lighted cross country ski trails and snow shoeing in the winter months. In the summer there are good and scenic hiking trails, canoe rentals, swimming beach and boat launch. There is also bike trails, picnic areas and a great playground. It is like a hidden gem in the middle of the city!

This is our favorite park. There are a number of trails, beach, boat ramp, and picnic area. Very dog friendly, as long as you keep your dog on the walking paths, and clean up after them. It seems safe, and there is a park patrol normally around somewhere. There is also a free "tram" ride if you do not want... More

I celebrated my 30th Birthday here. Rented out a private party room. The room had a great patio outside for our guests to use. You can grill there on the patio. The playground is right next to the party room for kids to use. The ONLY down side to this is you can't use plastic or disposable plates at your... More

Their play structure is awesome. It has slides, ladders and rope nets. There are also many picnic areas. In winter they have a sledding hill and lighted cross country... More

This is a hidden gem in Plymouth. There are a lot of things a person and family can do here. It's not the biggest park but there are thing to see, good trails, and good facilities. Great for the whole family.
