Paw Paw Park


This 50 acres of natural area is located West of Paw Paw Drive along the south bank of the Black River.


The site is low land along the river floodplain and is approximately 80% covered by wetlands. A MNRTF Grant helped to acquire an additional 30 acres of land, which was then developed with the help of a second grant in 1997 to include a small parking area, picnic shelter, fishing and canoe access, and a network of pathways throughout the park. The project will also provide the start of a river walk that will hopefully someday connect Window on the Waterfront and Kollen Park.
