Pig's Eye Regional Park
NOTICE: The Fish Hatchery Trail is closed from Battle Creek Regional Park to Warner Rd. Please use this recommended detour until further notice. For updates, visit the Fish Hatchery Trail Closure Updates page.
Pig's Eye Regional Park is located along the Mississippi River, in a section of the river where ecology, landscape, history, culture and institutions combine in a complex and exciting way. The former landfill was remediated and turned into a park featuring a 500-acre lake, hiking trails, and bird watching areas. The park contains one of the largest urban heron and egret rookeries in the Midwest. Many eagles can also be spotted here.
Pig’s Eye Regional Park is a part of the East Side River District, an area of the river that has many shared uses, including Dakota homeland and sacred sites, industry, parks and recreation, and natural areas that serve as a bird migration route.
Hiking Trails, Fishing, Bird Watching, and Archery Range
The archery range is located at 1200 Warner Rd. The hours are sunrise to sunset from spring to fall. The range has six targets, and one paved, ADA accessible lane with turn-around pads at 10 and 20 yards. Crossbows use is discouraged due to the size of the range. Broadhead arrows are not allowed. The range is available free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis, or by reservation through the Permit Office.
