Maplewood, Minnesota is home to several parks, trails, golf, and disc golf courses. As a part of the Ramsey County Parks and Trails system, Maplewood is home to some of the best spaces around. Some of the local favorites include:

Battle Creek Regional Park: Battle Creek Regional Park consists of nearly 1,840 acres of natural land and is located outside a well-established, suburban environment. Widespread pockets of woods, wetlands, and prairie land allure many species of wildlife. Trails entice visitors to see many species of animals including deer, fox, herons, egrets, and hawks. If you are a bird, water, or plant lover, these trails are the ideal location to explore the outdoors. Picnic shelters are accessible, including a large pavilion that can hold groups of up to 500 people. The pavilion and picnic shelters are also available for reservations. A recently developed mountain biking trail, Winthrop Street Mountain Biking Site, extends into 3.3 single-track mountain biking uses.

Keller Regional Park: Keller Regional Park contains about 750 acres of land, 9 miles of shoreline along Keller Lake, 2 golf courses (one of them being the popular Keller Golf Course that attracts over a half million visitors every year), and possesses a wide variety of activities and amenities for its park users. The City of Saint Paul and Ramsey County have been able to provide funding for changing demographics, outdated facilities, and increase natural resources. Some of the amenities include grills, shelters, trails, and the previously mentioned golf courses.

Four Seasons Park: Four Seasons Park is true to its name, offering year-round amenities for visitors. At 10 acres, the park is the perfect size for small families or larger group gatherings. Visitors enjoy the basketball court, tennis courts, children’s play area, hockey rink, sledding hill, warming house, park trail, and lots of open space.

Goodrich Park: Goodrich Park serves an important purpose for the community as one of the premier locations for adult softball leagues. With 3 separate fields, a kids play area, bathrooms, ample parking, and lots of open space, Goodrich Park is a great destination for the city. Additionally, it is a great place to watch or participate in a softball league during the warmer months.

Joy Park: Joy Park is one of the more unique parks found within the city of Maplewood. Located on the adjacent Silver Lake, Joy Park offers residents of the city access to the lake via a public boat launch. In addition to watersports and fishing on the lake, visitors can also enjoy several fishing piers, picnic areas, and lots of open space.
