Free Park Sampler in Hopkins & Minnetonka!

kayak-rental-text-photo.jpgBring your family and friends out to discover the many ways to enjoy the out-of-doors in your regional and local parks! On Sunday, September 8 from noon to 5 pm, Three Rivers will bring a sampling of our recreational and educational programs to Shady Oak Beach and the Hopkins Depot.

In cooperation with Hopkins-Minnetonka Recreation, we are welcoming folks of all ages to Shady Oak Beach in Minnetonka for canoeing & kayaking by the Outdoor Recreation School, learn about live raptors and other nature activities, visit with a farm educator and animals from our Gale Woods Farm, and play pickleball!

At the Hopkins Depot, you can talk with public safety and trail ambassadors promoting biking and our regional trails, take a digital camera art challenge and learn about our art programs at Silverwood, meet a "person from the past" and play the artifact game from The Landing, and learn about the Hopkins Depot history and our rails-to-trails program.

If you live in the Hopkins and Minnetonka area, be sure to take advantage of this special event to get a taste of what we have to offer at both Three Rivers and the Hopkins/Minnetonka Parks and Recreation outdoor programs!
