Caponi Art Park is a nice place to walk around and see art! It's like an outdoor art museum. I don't believe it's open in winter, but you can check.

This park is located in a residential and hilly area of Eagan. This is a walking park that has outdoor art and a small building next to the parking lot. Best to visit here when the weather is warm and dry.
