SNAPSHOT: Ramsey County Parks: Let it snow


Matt Hudson photos Ken Pelto with Ramsey County prepares a sled for use at Keller Regional Park Golfview Picnic Area on Feb. 12. Ramsey County set up a winter recreation station for free use in early February.

The blowing snow on a Tuesday meant few were showing up, but Ken Pelto with Ramsey County Parks and Recreation was setting up just in case.

The county hosted 10 days of winter activities from Feb. 8 to 18. Pelto and others set up a mobile activity center atop the hills of the Keller Regional Park Golfview area in Maplewood, including sleds, snowshoes, skis and the like. Cross-country ski trails were prepped and an ice fishing tent was on hand to warm up.

The activities were free, and Pelto said they hope to do it again if participation levels are high enough.
