Favorite place in Three Rivers Park District
As a mom of four young children, my husband (Todd) and I have long appreciated the Three Rivers park system. Whether it is winter tubing at Elm Creek Park Reserve, hiking at Fish Lake Regional Park, fishing at Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park or visiting the many other sites, our family has enjoyed the variety of activities the Park District has to offer the community.
Jennifer's term expires December 31, 2018.
