Dakota Rail Regional Trail Extension

The Dakota Rail Regional Trail currently ends at Shaver Park on the west edge of downtown Wayzata. As part of the City of Wayzata’s “Panoway” initiative to create a new vision for Wayzata’s connection to its Lake Minnetonka waterfront, Three Rivers Park District is partnering with the city to permanently reroute the trail to follow Lake Street through downtown.

This work will occur between Ferndale Road (just south of the railroad crossing) and Broadway Avenue South. It will move us closer to our ultimate vision of extending the Dakota Rail Regional Trail all the way to Minnetonka City Hall.

Construction will run from spring 2020 through late summer 2020 and should not affect operation of the current trail alignment. Please visit the City of Wayzata’s website for more information on this exciting project.
