Winter Time at Thorne-Rider Park

Winter is a great time at Thorne-Rider Park and Madia Memorial Fields. The two combine to give us over 55 acres of outdoor enjoyment. On the Thorne-Rider side of the park, the walking trail intersects through the entire park. We have three “dogipot” stations available – one at the south entrance of the park, one on the bridge, and one available at the gate entrance of Madia Memorial Field. Remember to pick up after your dog and please keep them on their leashes. On the Madia side of the park, we have a 1-1/8th mile wilderness trail and two sledding hills. The sledding hills are a great place to tune up your snowboard skills and also a great place for family sledding. When you plan your family’s holiday flag football game don’t forget the large open area of the Recreation District’s youth football fields.

Enjoy the mixed wildlife of the wilderness trail; we still have plenty of ducks, geese, and pheasants roaming the area, as well as a few early morning sightings of muskrats and deer.
