If your plans are to stay around town this weekend, you may be interested in some laid back fun. We found a creative artistic endeavor, a natural tea experience, and fun at the river.
- River Beach Art
Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park
My family loves to explore at the Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park. We love to walk along the river and see what we can collect or play in the exposed roots of the trees. The staff at Coon Rapids Dam understands this love of the hunt and want to encourage their guests to do more. So they have invited us to come to the river and create art with the debris washed ashore.
- Wild Tea Sampler
Eastman Nature Center
Drop in at anytime to taste some teas made from plants in your backyard. Kids under 17 must be with an adult. I know that coming home from this event, my kids will try to brew their own tea from the grass in the backyard. What do you think your kids will do?
- Lock and Dam 1 Self Guided Tours and Observation Deck Open
5000 West River Parkway, Minneapolis 55417
10:00 am-7:00 pm
Come and go as you please and enjoy time on the river. Hopefully, there will be a lot of movement through the lock so that you can experience the physics in action.
Whether you have already started school, will start school, or school-age is a long way off, we know you will have fun together this weekend.
