Lake Elmo Park Reserve

Lake Elmo and the surrounding park reserve are among the main reasons people flock to our side of town. The reserve is made up of a little over 2000 acres of land. The land comprises various landscapes, including rolling hills, forests, prairies, and more. The area is also home to an assortment of wildlife, including foxes, weasels, pheasants, deer, rabbits, and more. Conservation and preservation efforts have been taking place in the reserve; these efforts aim to revert the land to what it was before the colonizers arrived.
