Hidden gems: Discover more at Moir Park

At Moir Park, there’s more in store for you. A playground, volleyball court, disc golf course and softball diamonds are hidden away at West 104th Street and Morgan Avenue South. The seclusion makes this park a true hidden gem and the ideal spot for a walk or picnic.

Moir is the west link in a leafy, 218-acre chain of parks, including Harrison Picnic Grounds and Central Park, which stretch from just south of Old Shakopee Road to the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge. From Moir Park, head a few steps east, then turn south to get lost in nature.

“The trails along Nine Mile Creek are arguably some of the best in the Twin Cities,” Recreation Supervisor David Benson said. “It’s a bit of an escape. The geography almost takes you to another place.”
