Lowell Park is one of the beautiful riverside parks in downtown Stillwater. It stretches north and south of the historic lift bridge, which is always fun to walk across and hope it “lifts” for boats to pass under. Family-friendly amenities include a gazebo overlooking the St Croix, an amphitheatre that hosts community events, open grass spaces and a Pedestrian Plaza for picnics, as well as a walkway with benches for walks along the river. The park has indoor restrooms. In the winter, the city keeps an ice rink on the north side of the park.

Lowell Park is the Home of Stillwater’s Twinkle Parade

Stillwater’s annual Twinkle Parade and Festival includes family entertainment, costumed characters and a parade. Families are encouraged to dress up and join the parade. Twinkle lights are given out to children, but you can also bring your own battery-powered lights for the parade. Gianna amused us with her story of the Twinkle Parade in The Great Santa Chase of 2013.

Lowell Park Stop on the Stillwater Walking Tour

The City of Stillwater has put together a self-guided historic walking tour (PDF) that families may be interested in hiking. Each leg has a video that can be watched on your phone as you go or as a whole before or after the walk. These videos may be of most interest to adults and older kids. Lowell Park is the first stop of the tour and the video for this stop can be viewed below:
