Dakota County invites public to grand opening celebration of Whitetail Woods Regional Park

Nestled among thousands of acres of a natural area complex in Dakota County sits Whitetail Woods Regional Park — potentially one of the last regional parks that will ever be introduced within the constantly developing Twin Cities metro.

 

Whitetail Woods, 17100 Station Trail, Farmington, spans 456 acres of gently rolling hills, woods and wetlands surrounding a small, yet picturesque, lake. It boasts scenic hiking trails, comfortable camper cabins, a nature play area and an expansive picnic shelter, all of which can be explored during the park's grand opening celebration from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27.

 

The free event will include live music from Twin Cities sensation The Honeydogs, horse-drawn wagon rides, a 5K run/walk, geocaching, kite flying, a lake dedication and more. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
