Family Fun Directory of Things To Do with Kids:
Ojibway Park in Woodbury has several family-friendly amenities, including a Skate Park, a playground with both accessible and less accessible play structures and space for picnics with grills. There are also a variety of sports courts, paved and unpaved trails and winter recreation amenities. The park building has restrooms and there is off-street parking.
Winter at Ojibway Park
In the winter this park maintains cross country ski trails and a lighted hockey rink with a warming house.
Rinks are open, dependent on weather, from late December through the end of February. The City of Woodbury weather line -- (651) 714-3569 -- has up-to-date information regarding closures. Warming house hours are from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays (including school release days) and and 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends. Note: Rinks were closed for the 2018/19 due to the redesign project, but we expect to see them reopen for the 2019/20 season.
Ojibway Park Redesign Project
The City is the process of a redesign project at Ojibway Park, including removal of the park building and updating of playground equipment. Some of this work will disrupt usual park activities. Check the project webpage for updates.
The playground structure was removed in late fall of 2018. Installation of the new playground is tentatively scheduled for the spring/summer of 2019. During this process, the playground will be closed. The old playground equipment will be donated to Kids Around the World, an organization that establishes playgrounds in poverty-stricken countries.
Construction fencing will be placed around the entire construction site prior to the removal of the park building to ensure the safety of park users and construction workers.
Woodbury Days at Ojibway Park
Woodbury Days is a community festival hosted annually in late August. Activities include the Taste of Woodbury, carnival rides and games, community-sponsored activities and musical entertainment.

Ojibway Park Shelter is available to rent between April 14th and October 14th. The shelter holds up to 48 people and rental prices start at $90 for residents and $115 for non-residents and a $100 damage deposit.
