Since the Minnesota Vikings don’t play this weekend, why not get back to nature and visit Oxbow Park & Zollman Zoo, located in Byron?

Of course, there are the regular furry friends to visit, but now this season, a new natural playscape has opened.

According to the website,, this new natural playscape is called a “Path of Imagination.”

It offers a natural elements playground and an outdoor education area.

A few interactive activities include a sand pit, a maze, a rolling hill, a running hill, a rock tunnel and many more...

“Nature has so many opportunities to offer children of all ages to play and have fun while gaining a greater appreciation of the natural world.  Kids are able to run and feel more freedom, while parents can easily watch from a distance and have a better sense of safety.  Most features will be easily accessible to young children and disabled individuals.”

The Hours:
Park Open Daily - 7 am to 10 pm
Zollman Zoo Hours: Open Daily - 10 am to 4 pm

Enjoy the outdoors, while relaxing and watching the kids use their imagination!
