Visit a Twin Cities Park – fun thing to do
With spring in the air, it is time for outdoor activities. But, with our coronavirus concerns we must abide by our state mandated “social distancing”. That means 6 feet is recommended in the outdoors. But indoors, like a grocery store, 6 feet is the bare minimum required.
What are some parks to visit?
Northern suburbs of the Twin Cities – North Mississippi Regional Park is a joint effort. Created with the Minneapolis Park Board and the Three Rivers Park District. It borders the western shore of the Mississippi. And connected to the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway through bike trails.
