Canoe Bench by Greg Ingraham

“In a community feedback project called “Eagan Forward,” the Eagan community shared the need for additional resting spaces along the extensive walking trail system. In 2017, Parks & Recreation installed twelve new benches. Of those, four were designed and created by artists to represent the unique landscape.”

Birthday Parties in the Sun Shelter

This park does not accept reservations and does not have restroom facilities, so it is not ideal for birthday parties. If you are willing to chance it, the sun shelter can be used on first-come basis and holds up to 25 people. There is a charcoal grill available.
