Anoka County Parks would like to engage current park users and residents that are unfamiliar with the park system to assist in future planning efforts. In collaboration with the Metropolitan Council, Anoka County Parks will be engaging the community through various outreach efforts to ensure that park amenities reflect the changing community needs. Projects that are open for public feedback will be listed on this page as they become available.
Rice Creek North Regional Trail
Rice Creek North Regional Trail is a 10-foot wide, eight (8) mile long paved trail that follows Rice Creek through the south-east quadrant of the county. It provides a connection between Anoka and Ramsey counties and connects the Cities of Blaine, Circle Pines, and Lino Lakes. The trail also connects to the East Anoka County Regional Trail, Bunker Chain of Lakes Regional Trail, and the Rice Creek Regional Trail system in Ramsey County. Anoka County is updating the master plan for the trail and is seeking public input regarding options to complete the trail between Golden Lake Elementary and Baldwin Park in the City of Circle Pines. Concepts have been developed. Please provide any input or feedback regarding the options.
