7 Mile Park

7 Mile Park is a 628-acre county park located off of Highway 169 between North Mankato and St. Peter. There are multiuse trails with equestrian parking and a highway underpass. Several footbridges cross 7 Mile Creek. A boat landing is located on the east side for access to the Minnesota River. It's a beautiful park with new playground equipment, 2 volleyball courts, and 3 shelters.

While you can not reserve 7 Mile Park as it is on a first come, first serve basis, the park caretaker does keep a calendar of events he is informed of. You can contact Mike at 507-934-7725.
