Oakwood Park, 7851 Harkness Ave S, Cottage Grove, MN 55016, USA

Oakwood Park in Cottage Grove has 36 acres of trails, a disc golf course and even a brand new playground. 

Heading to this community park, expect to have a variety of recreational adventures with your family. When pulling into the parking lot you will see a beautiful landscape of trees surrounding the playground. Beyond the playground, there is a disc golf course that is quite popular, as well as trails and a beautiful overlook to the city of Cottage Grove. 

Disc golf has been one of the main attractions at this park for many years. Most of the holes have a bench next to or nearby if you (or your kids) need a rest. The course is well maintained by the city and a very popular Twin Cities intermediate level spot. 

The playground here was added in the Fall of 2021. It is the first thing my kids noticed and ran to when we pulled up. The equipment is brand new and had some fun features that we hadn't seen at other local parks. My kids were drawn to the "nature" theme of this playground: a giant "rock" to climb, "tree branch" balance beams, "log" stepping stones and even "boards" to climb the "tree" to the slide. One of my favorite features about this park is the ample seating around the playground for caregivers and parents to keep an eye on littles while they play. It would be a perfect spot for a playdate. 

After exploring the trails, disc golf course and playground head across the street for some Bubble Tea from Sushi Cafe!
