“Great winter eagle photography.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Go in January - March and the eagles are great. Close to town and warm coffee. All the roads are plowed for easy access. Very friendly people.

“Excellent playground”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Grandsons loved the playground area. It is very creative and lots of different equipment for a wide range of ages. Only thing I wondered about was why the waterpark was closed. Should be open through Labor Day.

“My favorite Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Colvill Park has something for everyone. It has a water park that is open from Memorial Day thru Labor Day. It has a handicap accessible playground. It has a learning garden that has raised beds and tags so you can see, touch, smell, and read about the plants. It has a couple boat harbors and public boat launches. It has several pavilions that can be rented for parties and get togethers. The old pool house is great for family & class reunions, business meetings, receptions and anything else. It has a kitchen, bathrooms, a large open area and it is heated and air conditioned. The park is right on the river and the scenery is beautiful. It has a walking path that goes around the whole park. It also has ample parking. I live in Red Wing so it is possible for me to go to the park a few times per week.

“Great place to watch eagles!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

A huge park with a marina, pavillion, playground and picnic tables, but the best thing to do, is to look for the eagles that nest nearby. They are easy to spot fishing in the water near the marina.

“Kids said the playground was "Heaven on Earth"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

The kids (6, 9, and 12) were blown away by the playground at Colvill Park. We've been to lots of playgrounds over the years, but I'd have to say this was their favorite. I had to pull them away after 3.5 hours of play. They could have spent all day there.
There were areas for many different age levels. Also FYI, a lot of the areas are wheelchair accessible since there are ramps in many places. The park was right on the water, so bring binoculars to spot the birds.
