Fun Facts

The Carl W. Kroening Interpretive Center opened March 22, 2002. It is named to honor Carl W. Kroening, a former teacher from the area and Minnesota State legislator.

A heron rookery once occupied an island just downstream from the visitor center but was devastated by a tornado in May of 2011. The surviving herons moved the rookery to other islands near Marshall Terrace Park or to an existing rookery at Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park.

There is the possibility to observe the abundant wildlife in this park: Great Blue Herons, deer, beaver, hawks, and eagles are frequently spotted at this park.
