Crow-Hassan Park Reserve

Located on the Crow River, this park offers an uninterrupted expanse of peaceful wilderness. Among the scenery, the restored prairie is a year-round attraction for its ever-changing color palette. Miles of trails wind through the park reserve and give an opportunity to spot wildlife like deer, fox, coyotes, trumpeter swans, hawks, and bald eagles. Scenic trails and group campsites that accommodate horses make this park a popular destination for horseback riders.
