Bloomington's Hyland Park is known in 'kid' circles as 'Chutes & Ladders'… one of the best playgrounds in the metro! Officially Hyland Lake Park Reserve, this 1,000 acre park is part of the Three Rivers Park District and offers much more… although the creative play area is definitely a worthy kid magnet!


Great for ages up to about 12, kids can spend hours climbing, hanging and sliding down chutes up to 50 feet long… and it also includes a section for children under 5 or with disabilities. Come prepared to get wet on a hot summer day… kids love running through the water sprayers!

Don't have kids? Don't worry, the playground is just a small part of the this expansive park which has something for just about everyone… picnic areas… 18 miles of trails… rowboat, canoe and paddleboat rental… fishing pier… disc (frisbee) golfRichardson Nature Center.


In the winter the park transforms to a winter wonderland… with cross country ski trails and rentals, sledding, ice fishing… and the Hyland Ski and Snowboard Area for downhill skiing and jumping.

Hyland Lake Park Reserve is a great family destination year round. With acres of woodlands and prairies and six bodies of water it is hard to believe it is just five minutes from the Mall of America and 17 minutes from downtown Minneapolis!
