Parks & Trails

Welcome to your guide to the parks of Cottage Grove. Cottage Grove is a great community hosting over 1,300 acres of park land open for all ages to use. Our park system is extensive, encompassing anything from sports fields, play structures, and buildings for rent to natural open space, trails, and picnic areas. Park space in Cottage Grove also includes the Ravine Regional Park, which is maintained by Washington County Parks.

A copy of the Cottage Grove Paths and Parks map (PDF) is available online and at City Hall and the Ice Arena.
