Carriage Station Playground
Lake Elmo’s park system serves organized sports, casual play, hiking, cross-county skiing, horseback riding, picnicking, relaxation, nature appreciation, and a variety of other outdoor activities. While all parks share the common purpose of providing quality recreation facilities and open spaces, each park is unique in terms of its history, setting, character and use.

Interactive Parks and Trails Map
In 2021 the City introduced a new Interactive Parks and Trails Map showcasing City Parks, Trailheads, and Trail maps.
