Love history? Like to ski? Come to Riverside Park, one of St. Cloud’s premiere historic landscapes, on Sunday, January 26th, 2020, for a history scavenger hunt ski tour. 

This outdoor winter history program will be held in conjunction with the 13th Annual Sons of Norway Barnelopet, a children’s fun Nordic ski event, and is a partnership project with the Nordic Ski Club of Central MN, the Central Minnesota Youth Ski Club, the Southeast St. Cloud Neighborhood Preservation Coalition and Rethos.

Established in 1910 to take advantage of St. Cloud’s location along the Mississippi River, Riverside Park features spectacular views of the Beaver Islands and a design inspired by Frederick Law Olmsted’s Central Park in New York City. Significantly improved and developed during the New Deal-era of the 1930s and early 40s, Riverside Park is part of the newly established Southeast St. Cloud New Deal-Built Landscapes Historic District. Check your knowledge of park history, the New Deal era and the environment during this unique winter event.

The self-guided tour is free and will take place 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2-3 p.m., both before and after the 1 p.m. Barnelopet (Norwegian for kid’s race).

For more information and to register for the Barnelopet contact Nick at 763/232-4921 or stcloud@mysl.org, visit http://mysl.org/club/central-mn-youth-ski-club or head to their Facebook event page here.
