Enjoy Minnesota winter fun at Tubing at Elm Creek Park Reserve. See the changes for 2021 including a reservations only policy.
We might not have any mountains but we are lucky enough to have some great hills for sledding and tubing. One of our favorite spots happens to be part of the Three River Park District.
Elm Creek Park Reserve is located near Maple Grove. We like that they provide the tubes and having a magic carpet to get back up to the top.
Now we need to keep in mind that this year is different and I am still very thankful so many places are still opening and offering activities for our kids and families.
Even with the changes we are excited to go back to Elm Creek. Our girls have been trying out different sledding hills near our neighborhood and each time they come back laughing. They are both in high school so it just proves that sledding and tubing is something ALL ages can do.
