Centennial Lakes Park Edina 4.8 km away
#1 of 3 Nature & Parks in Edina
When the weather is nice we love to walk around the lake, see movies in the park on Thursday nights, have picnics, rent paddle boats, play mini golf, goto the farmers market, and play croquet.
On a perfect summer evening we strolled around the park enjoying the water features, butterfly gardens and just the serene feeling of a perfectly designed park.
