And to make it even more inviting, this year, Owatonna Parks and Recreation has created a new, one-month Park Passport program to promote healthy lifestyle choices. It encourages families and individuals to explore their parks and trails and get fit doing so!
This is a FREE program and all parks are free as well.
It goes from September 23 to October 21.
- Get your passport.
- Visit the parks listed and find the hidden password. Parks will have a small sign mounted to a post along the trail.
- Reveal the phrase! Write the hidden password for each park/trail in the appropriate box to reveal the message. Submit your completed passport by October 26.
- Enjoy your time in the parks! The ten Passport Parks and Trails are Mineral Springs Park, Leo Rudolph Nature Reserve, Dartts Park, Buxton Trail, North Straight River Parkway, Kaplan’s Woods Trail, 18th Street Trail, Manthey Park, Muckle Trail and Kaplan’s Woods Parkway. A completed passport equals 11 miles of trail walking!
