Winter Outdoor Recreation

Trail Grooming

Parks and Recreation works hard during the winter to keep Freeman Park and Tautphaus Park groomed for the public. Both Freeman and Tautphaus can be used anytime during the week or weekend and is free. They will be groomed for the entire winter depending on snow conditions.

Please remember to be respectful of others and use the trails for their intended use. Cross country skiers should use the grooved trails while cross country skaters, fat bikers and walkers should all use the flat groomed path to the side. Please also remember to pick up after your dogs.
