Come out to Quarry Park on Saturday, June 16 and enjoy free family activities in celebration of the park’s 20th anniversary. From 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., visitors to the park will find a rock climbing wall, a park escape/scavenger hunt, derrick demonstrations (11:00, 12:00, and 1:00), historical reenactment, animals, mammal and wetland education, and aquarium photo booth. Parking will be free. In 1992, Stearns County purchased the Quarry Park site from Cold Spring Granite Company and added the land to its county park system. Quarry Park opened on January 1, 1998. The park is 683 acres, offering 20 granite quarries, of which two are used for swimming, mountain bike paths, trout fishing, picnic areas, hiking trails, geocaching, rock climbing, scuba diving, scenic overlooks, derrick exhibit, cross-country ski trails, winter walking, snowshoeing and fat tire bicycle trails.
