Wirth Winter Recreation Area
Great value, expertise, and a deep snow base of fun for cross-country skiing, snowboarding, tubing, walking, and cycling, in an urban environment.

Walking/Cycling Trails
Explore 51 miles of plowed, shared use walking and biking trails around the Grand Rounds Byway District. For the adventurous cyclist, try the off-road biking course in the Wirth Winter Recreation Area.

Cross-Country Skiing
Enjoy a winter day on groomed cross-country ski trails at five sites. Lessons are available for beginners of all ages. Bring your own boots, skis, and poles, or rent ski equipment.

Snowboarding
The first inner-city snowboard program in Minneapolis offers snowboarding to the general public at a low cost in the Wirth Winter Recreation Area.

Snow Tubing and Sledding
The Minneapolis Park System has two designated sledding hills at Columbia Golf Course and Sunset Hill at Wirth. Tubing is offered at Wirth Winter Recreation Area with lighting and snow making.

Snowshoeing
Explore Minneapolis parks in the winter on a snowshoe stroll during the day or under the light of the moon. Watch for wildlife and enjoy wintertime's nature as you tromp through the snow.

Ice Rinks and Warming Houses
Lace up your skates and enjoy two indoor ice rinks and 47 outdoor rinks at 22 Minneapolis parks. Separate rinks are maintained for recreational skating, and sports like hockey, pond hockey and broomball. Most locations offer free loaner skates.

Ice Fishing
Ice fishing on Minneapolis lakes provides anglers with great fishing opportunities in the winter months.

Winter Special Events
Get out and enjoy winter at special events throughout the parks.

Don't let the snow and cold keep you inside - come out and play!
