PIG’S EYE REGIONAL PARK ARCHERY RANGE
The archery range, located on Warner Road, is open spring through fall from sunrise to sunset. The range has six targets, including one paved, ADA-accessible lane. Because of the size of this range, crossbows are discouraged and broadhead arrows are not allowed. The range is free to use and first come, first serve – unless it has been reserved. Reservations can be made through the Permit Office.
RECENT RENOVATIONS AT PIG’S EYE REGIONAL PARK
Some major renovations are currently taking place at the park. Fish Hatchery Trail, which runs through the park, is open with temporary repairs completed to fix stormwater runoff, but a more permanent solution will have to be considered when funding is available. In the spring of 2018, Saint Paul Natural Resources planted thousands of trees throughout the park as part of its floodplain forest enhancement initiative. The trees were planted to augment the resilience of the ecosystem in the face of climate change and to improve the overall habitat and recreational value of the site.
