“Great Place for a Fall Hike”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

French Regional Park is a great place to hike, cross-country ski, or explore via kayak and canoe. We go there year round. There is also an excellent large playground with lots of things for kids to climb. Most recently we went there for a fall hike.

“Beautiful park”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

French regional park sits on the North Shore of Medicine Lake. It has a wonderful and huge rope maze in the summer, great beach area with bathrooms, concessions and kayak/canoe rentals. There are great picnic area's to be rented as well as nice paved bike paths. In the winter months they have cross country ski trails and rentals, which are well maintained through the park system, overall and wonderful place!

“Great place for sledding!”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

There is a large sledding hill across from the main building. It's super fun for the kids. The first time down was kind of scary, as it is a large hill, but the kids loved it!

The kids (and adults) get a good workout, since they have to climb back up the hill each time.

We like to come here on days the kids have off from school.

I have yet to come during the summer months and go hiking. It's on my agenda for next summer.
