Enjoy a Stunning Sunset at a Woodbury Park

See a beautiful sunset from a Woodbury park or historic site nearby.

Every evening the skies above Woodbury feature an impressive blend of pink, purple, and golden hues. If you would like to enjoy the sunset, the most stunning destinations are just around the corner from Valley Creek Luxury Living Apartments. They include:

Gold Medal Park 

When Gold Medal Park opened in 2007, it became the first sizeable greenspace added to downtown Minneapolis since the early 1800s. Nestled between the river and the city, its unique design is meant to nurture contemplative moments. A hill provides picturesque views of the Mississippi River and the sunset over Saint Anthony Falls. Twenty handcrafted benches surround the park. Also, in the evening, blue LED lights glow from within the park to add an ethereal ambiance.

Historic Fort Snelling 

What was once a military training base now welcomes thousands of people every year to hike, bike, and learn about the local history. Nestled near the confluence of the rivers, Historic Fort Snelling has quite a storied history. It was both constructed and activated in the 1820s. Also, it reflects the development of the United States and its military endeavors for over 120 years. Visitors can watch blacksmithing demonstrations, explore exhibits, and enjoy the sunset from one of the trails. 

Those who would like to enhance their experience can enjoy a guided theme tour on Saturdays. They’re a great way to explore while waiting for the sun to dip below the horizon.

Indian Mounds Regional Park 

Indian Mounds Regional Park is a fascinating destination. It features several Native American burial grounds atop 450 million-year-old sandstone and limestone bluffs. They serve as a reminder of the state’s history. Also, it’s believed that the mounds were created approximately 1,500 to 2,000 years ago. Visitors can hike and bike along a dedicated trail. Part of the park overlooks the Mississippi River and St. Paul skyline for spectacular sunset views.

You can also explore more of the local history at the Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Wing. If you would like to call Valley Creek Luxury Living Apartments home, please contact our friendly leasing agents. They will arrange a personalized tour so you can see our available floor plans firsthand.
