Hours of Operation

Public access to the park is limited to certain areas until further notice, due to construction activities. The area within the chain-link fence near the existing red barn (where the Farmer’s Market takes place) is the only area still open to the public, from sunrise to sunset, 7 days a week. There is no public access to park acreage beyond the Coulee Mine until construction activities are completed. We appreciate your patience during this time!
