Story Strolls

Read a story, while taking a stroll with your kids!

Story Strolls are FREE with Vehicle Permit and self-guided. A permanent story stroll has been installed at Big Marine Park Reserve, thanks to a partnership with Washington County Library

Take a walk while reading a great book on the Story Adventure Trail at Big Marine Park Reserve! This story stroll follows a walking path that loops by the playground and picnic shelter. The Story Adventure Trail is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. 

It is a great way to enjoy Washington County parks, practice social distancing, and read a great book!
