Location: Coldwater Spring, 5601 Minnehaha Park Drive South

Mohamed, Nimco, Najma and Hawa enjoy hiking around Coldwater Spring as a stop on their Nice Ride bike adventure. The restored twelve acres of prairie, oak savannah, and one acre of wetland have matured, and nature has taken back the land where twelve buildings once sat.

Take an audio tour of Coldwater Spring and other locations in the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area using Ranger on Call.
