Story trails

Story trails, provided in partnership with Ramsey County Library, are free programs perfect for all ages, especially families with young children. Story trails combine reading with getting active outside and enjoying nature. Each page of a book is placed on a sign along the park's walking trail for visitors to enjoy.
