Parks & Recreation

The City of Mendota Heights boasts a variety of recreation opportunities. Few cities can claim access to regional trails, riverside and lakeside parks, scenic bluffs and a wildlife preserve among their recreation facilities. These represent unique features in a park system that help to shape the character of Mendota Heights beyond the ordinary. They offer a visual identity to the city in addition to contributing to the quality of life for those who live here. The city's thirteen developed parks total 242 acres of active and passive recreation areas. Twenty-one miles of trails provide bountiful opportunities for walking, bicycling, bird watching and nature hikes.
