Eagles congregate between Red Wing and Wabasha Minnesota in the winter as there are various places where the Mississippi River does not freeze over, and these are places where eagles can fish. Just north of Lake Pepin, we found dozens of eagles in December. This time we saw four on the way to Red Wing and a couple in the trees watching the river in Colvill Park. The area is just under an hour's drive from Rochester.

Stopped by for an hour or more for our 6 year old grandaughter to play. She loved it and says it's a 5 ster playground. We enjoyed walking along the river and watched a barge head down the river. The gardens were still pretty even though it was late October. I would love o return in the summer.

They have done a great job with this lovely park- It has been there as long as we can remember, but they have done an awesome job updating and building an extensive, super fun play area for young ones. However, even for everyone the pathways and views are beautiful. Worth the stop, or take a picnic!

We walked for hours enjoying the fall art festival in downtown Red Wing and went down to the river to enjoy the view. There is a large playground for children, swings and benches along the river, a bike/walking trail and a large grassy area. A lot of people were walking their dogs so dogs are welcome into the park. There is of course a shelter for picnics too.

The park has wide open space to play athletic games or for large gatherings and to just enjoy.

You can enjoy walking along the road to view the marinas that are filled with boats of different sizes, shapes and identifiable names such as Blue Water, Sea Ray, Kismet and more . . . .

The day we were there they had a large group of Model-T cars driving around the park.

One of the uncommon and retro attractions next to the park are the boat garages. Rows and rows of them. They are not found in most cities.

Fish were constantly jumping out of the water to catch insects. This was a semi warm October day.
