The Nature Playground at Patrick Eagan Park

In response to Eagan residents’ desire for a natural place where kids could climb trees and play in nature, the city created its first nature playground. This park combines elements of traditional playground equipment — like a zipline and climbing webs – with natural elements found in other local nature play areas.
