Spring Lake Regional Park

Located on the north shore of Spring Lake and near the southwest shore of Prior Lake, Spring Lake Regional Park offers 374 acres of incredibly diverse natural habitats. Every day, eagles readily soar in the sky. The old Maple-Basswood forest creates a beautiful backdrop for a peaceful stroll. A small creek winds through the park’s maze of open water wetlands, cattail marshes and a tamarack bog.
