For those who have made New Year’s resolutions to lose
weight or exercise more, beginning this weekend, they can enjoy outdoor
activities at Ney Regional Park in Maple Lake.
The Wright County Parks & Recreation Department announced
that starting Saturday, Jan. 4 and continuing through mid-March, Parks &
Rec staff will be opening Ney Park on weekends for those wanting to cross
country ski and snowshoe.
On Saturdays and Sundays throughout the winter, Ney
Park will be open from noon to 4 p.m. for those who want to rent cross country
skis or snowshoes to use in the park. The fee for the rental is $5. For those
who have cross country skis or snowshoes of their own, there is no charge. The
cross country trails are groomed often to make the skiing experience easier for
skiers of any skill level.
The West Unit of Ney Park has 4.3 miles of groomed
trails and the East Unit of the park has 5.3 miles of groomed trails.
