Great scenery in the city. I love the owls. The paths make the area very attractive. The various art programs are excellent. The observation center is really nicely done.

Spectacular oak stands, quiet island with shelter and picnic spots, indoor art exhibits, rocking chairs on patio overlooking silver lake, fireplace indoors and out, great wedding venue. Thanks, Hennepin county, for making this our favorite neighborhood walk any season! Pottery classes also rocked!
