Family Fun Directory of Things To Do with Kids:
Central Park in Eagan is home to the Eagan Community Center (The Blast Indoor Playground) and Festival Grounds. It also has sports courts and fields, a fitness obstacle course geared more towards older kids and adults, playground equipment - including a unique set of natural balance beams - and a bandshell for community entertainment. Eagan's only splash pad resides in Central Park.
For the active family, the park offers miles of walking trails through beautiful landscaping. The trails are paved and stroller friendly. There is a veterans memorial plaza along these trails.
Wednesday nights during the summer months, Eagan's Central Park hosts Market Fest from 4-8pm. Bring the family to shop for fresh produce, enjoy dinner, live music and other activities.
