Play Areas

Playing free in the outdoors is one of the greatest joys of childhood. Washington County Parks provide play structures, ball fields, open fields, beaches, and woods to keep youngsters moving and intrigued for many hours of play.

Play areas at Cottage Grove Ravine Regional Park, St. Croix Bluffs Regional Park, and Lake Elmo Park Reserve close for the winter. The play area at Big Marine Park Reserve remains open.

There is a large "destination" play area in the park that is actually two play areas installed in one general location. The gigantic creative playground is a favorite for children of all ages. The highly accessible playground features a towering 18-foot slide, a colossal climbing rock, and a 20-foot geodesic climbing web.
