EAGAN MN LIFESTYLE
With more than 55 parks and wetland areas, hiking, cycling and walking trails, the most generous information you could need would be here. There are maps, links, photos recommendations and more.
My favorite ones would however be Lebanon Hills Regional Park which encourages you to use the outdoors summer and winter and offers snowshoeing, skating and cross country skiing in a beautiful environment.
Caponi Park - Which is not just a park, it has an amphitheater with cultural experiences from Shakespeare to Orchestra and poets to plays.
The Blast Indoor Playground - Great place for kids!
The Minnesota Zoo is also very convenient to Eagan MN and with a membership to the zoo, you can literally pop in anytime and be entertained and learn so much about the animals - a fantastic experience if you enjoy Zoos.
Cascade Bay Waterpark is a great summer time play area with many slides for the younger and older kids and of course the lovely lazy river
