Spring Lake Park Reserve is a large Dakota County Park that stretches from Hastings to Rosemount. The park offers year-round family fun, including archery, community gardens and a playground.
8 Ideas for Family Fun at Spring Lake Park Reserve
Practice Archery. The archery range is in the Rosemount section of the park and requires an archery pass to use ($6/day or $30/season). Archery season is from early April to late November, weather dependent. We include it among our favorite archery ranges in the Twin Cities.
Pack a Picnic. Eat lunch before exploring and playing.
Go for a Hike. The park has 5 1/2 miles of hiking trails. If you prefer to bring a stroller or kids bikes, they have over 6 miles of paved trails.
Bring your leashed dog on a hike. Dogs are only allowed on hiking trails, not the paved trails.
Geocache. Bring your own GPS and get the app from Geocaching.com to find the hidden caches around the park.
