Great park to walk

There are great trails for walking this park. Lots of trees and diverse views. Bugs can be an issue so spray with mosquito spray first.

French Regional Park is beautiful! Perfect for picnics, a nice stroll, jogging/hiking or fishing. There is also a large playground there that kids LOVE! I like that its so open and away from the busy streets. The wooded trails are quiet and peaceful and the views are gorgeous. Parking is not the best but during the summer there is a... More

French Park is clean and green. It's a good place to take a walk or picknick. There was nothing I didn't care for.

French Regional Park has something for everybody: short, paved hiking trails for the leisure walkers and longer, unpaved ones for the real-deal hikers-- all with good views. While you don't get to walk around the lake like in Lakes Calhoun and Harriet, it is wonderful to go through the woods, visit the marsh and end up in the beach area... More

French park is a great area park with open spaces, as well as many walking paths through trees and along the lake. It's a great place for a picnic in the summer, or just to get out of the hustle and bustle during the day!

French Regional Park is a great place to hike, cross-country ski, or explore via kayak and canoe. We go there year round. There is also an excellent large playground with lots of things for kids to climb. Most recently we went there for a fall hike.

There is a large sledding hill across from the main building. It's super fun for the kids. The first time down was kind of scary, as it is a large hill, but the kids loved it! The kids (and adults) get a good workout, since they have to climb back up the hill each time. We like to come here... More
