Located on the north shore of Spring Lake and near the southwest shore of Prior Lake, Spring Lake Regional Park offers 374 acres of incredibly diverse natural habitats. Every day, eagles readily soar in the sky. The old Maple-Basswood forest creates a beautiful backdrop for a peaceful stroll. A small creek winds through the park’s maze of open water wetlands, cattail marshes and a tamarack bog.
A 3-mile paved trail takes visitors through forest and future savanna prairie offering breathtaking vistas. Each season will provide the hiker or casual walker with an opportunity to explore the beautiful habitat that supports a variety of wildlife. The trail connects the park from north to south, as well as to County Road 12. Dogs are allowed on all paved trails with a 6-foot, non-retractable leash.
A 10-acre off-leash pet area with a watering and rinsing station provides a wonderful opportunity for dog owners to exercise their dogs. There are two separate fully-fenced areas: 9 acres for large dogs and 1 acre for small dogs (25 lbs. or less). A daily or annual pass is required. An automated pay box on site accepts credit and debit cards for daily passes.
