It’s almost impossible to be bored in Minnesota – especially if you love to be outside. With over 10,000 lakes, more than 60 state parks, and even a gorgeous national park, our state is full of outdoor recreation. Each of those things is wonderful, but they don’t even scratch the surface of all there is to do here. Today, we want to introduce not a state park but a municipal park that happens to be one of the best and most family-friendly places in Minnesota. With a zoo, a waterfall, hiking trails, and more, this family-friend park is one that anyone will love. Take a look:

Have you been to Ramsey Park? If so, what did you think? Which parts were your favorites? We’d love to read about your experience in the comments section below! To learn more about the park go to the official website or to the Redwood Falls Facebook page.

And if you’re looking for another unique fun thing to do outside in Minnesota, check out our past article about Franconia Sculpture Park!
