Cross Country Skiing

This park has a cross-country ski trail.  You will need your own equipment. Note that all Minneapolis Park ski trails require a Ski Trail Pass through the Loppet Foundation (separate from the MN DNR’s ski pass). Find up-to-date pass prices and information here.

If you would prefer to cross-country ski for FREE , we recommend Como Regional Park in St Paul.

Archery at Columbia Park

The archery range is across Columbia golf just west of Central Ave on St. Anthony Parkway. It is run on a first-come, first served basis and patrons must bring their own equipment and targets. Hay bales are provided. Click here to find more local archery ranges.
