Weather is rather unpredictable in the Midwest around this time. However, the first official day of Spring has arrived and the sun is shining!


Everyone has been itching to get outside after being cooped up all winter long. Soon people will be gardening and playing outside! How exciting?! To celebrate, we have compiled the communities best and most beautiful parks to visit this spring.





1. Teddy Bear Park

Free and open to the public, Teddy Bear Park is one of the most popular parks in the Stillwater area. There's something for every child's imagination to explore – slides, swings, tunnels, and more! Parents can also take a cute picture of their little bear cub with the giant teddy bear located in the heart of the park. Visitors are welcome to the park every day from 8 am. to 8 pm. until mid-October.


2. Stillwater Dog Park

Established in 2014, this park is the biggest attraction for dog owners in the area! Dogs are allowed to be off their leash in the fenced-in area from 8 am. to sunset. Be sure you know your dog well – not all dogs are fit for an off-the-leash park! Follow the link for a complete list of rules and regulations.


3. Lily Lake Park

If you're in the mood for some wide open spaces, Lily Lake Park is for you. Discover your love for mother nature as you follow the hiking paths and fish off the dock.  For the little ones, there is a playground area along with a picnic area for lunch. There is so much to explore at Lily Lake Park!




1. Hamlet Park

Hamlet Park is Cottage Groves' largest park! It features 5 baseball fields, 3 soccer fields, 2 tennis courts, 2 basketball courts, 2 sand volleyball courts, 1 skateboard park, and 1 ice skating rink. Wow! You can also explore the walking/hiking paths or grill out at one of the picnic shelters. There is also a play structure for the little ones. This park has little something for everyone!



2. Old Cottage Grove Community Park

This park has an old school charm to it. It features the traditional playground and picnic tables with a few sports fields. Old Cottage Grove Community Park is ideal for those who want a small, relaxing park to BBQ and get together with a few neighborhood friends! You should see it when the grass and trees are green again – it's beautiful!


3. Wag Farms Dog Park

Yes – another local dog park! Wag Farms Dog Park also has an off-the-leash area for both small and big dogs to social and exercise. It is important to remember if you cannot control your dog verbally, they will have to remain on their leash. Explore with man's best friend the various landscapes this park provides: woodlands, grasslands and a pond! A group of volunteers run Wag Farms Dog Park to ensure every pet and owner has the best and safest park experience. Follow the link for further details.


So get up, go outside and soak up the sunshine! We have waited all winter for this!
