Family friendly amenities include a playground, sports courts and approximately a half mile of hiking trails. In the winter, this park is popular for its sledding. Note that Bass Creek flows through this park and it is the location of one of the City’s reservoir and associated well house. Off street parking is available.
Winter at Bass Creek Park
This park offers a wide, medium slope sledding hill during the snowy months. There is enough room for multiple sledders and children of all ages should be able to find a slope that is appropriate for their needs. Find more Twin Cities sledding hills here.
The Pickleball Courts
Brooklyn Park is proud of its pickleball courts. They describe the game as "a miniature version of tennis or a gigantic version of ping pong". Outdoor courts are available at this park.

Possible Future Updates
This City of Brooklyn Park is considering updates to this park including reconstruction of the Boone Avenue parking lot; possible relocation and expansion of the playground; expansion of the walking path to eliminate the need for walking in the street; a natural resource plan to preserve the natural areas within the park; and possibly a mountain biking course. None of these updates are scheduled at this point.
