Park Board hosting open houses for Wirth Park Adventure and Welcome Center

The Park Board is holding two community open houses to share design concepts for the proposed Wirth Park Adventure and Welcome Center — a collaboration between the parks system and the Loppet Foundation.

The new facility in Theodore Wirth Park will focus on cross-country skiing, par-3 golf support, snowboarding, mountain bike racing and snow tubing.

The open houses will be held Saturday, Jan. 31, 10 a.m.–3 p.m., at the main City of Lakes Loppet Village tent at Theodore Wirth Park, and Tuesday, Feb. 3, 6–7:30 p.m. at Park Board headquarters, 2117 W. River Road.

A second round of community open houses is planned for spring.
