Silverwood Park is unique Twin Cities regional park in New Brighton, MN with a focus on the arts and the environment. This 68-acre park was a Salvation Army Camp from 1922 until 2001, when the Three Rivers Park District purchased it and redeveloped the site.

With miles of hiking and biking trails offering spectacular views of Silver Lake including a bridge to the island, this is a wonderful place to enjoy a peaceful nature retreat regardless of the season… and perhaps go fishing or canoeing or bring a sketch pad or enjoy a family picnic.



Visit the changing art exhibits on display in the gallery and take in some of the wide range of activites and events offered throughout the year for all ages from preschoolers through seniors… including classes in pottery, photography, watercolors, papermaking, McPhail family music series… even yoga!


Stop at the Silverwood Cafe on Saturday mornings for an acoutic jam session along with great views and a great selection of hot and cold drinks, bakery treats, sandwiches and a variety of unique all-natural oatmeal flavors including 'Lei'd Back' and 'Monkey Bars'!

Located just minutes from busy freeways with easy access to both Minneapolis and St. Paul, New Brighton is a great community to call home. It is also the site of the first owner-occupied townhouse complex in the state… Windsor Green, with 34 park-like acres located right across the street from Silver Lake and Silverwood Park.
