Many of Crystal's existing parks, recreation, trails and natural area systems were first envisioned as part of the Park Systems Master Plan planning process. These plans provide a framework to guide the city in establishing priorities, making decisions, funding improvements and operations, and ensures the city’s park needs meet current demand and builds capacity for future generations.

Nearby Regional Parks

In addition to the many park offerings within Crystal, residents have access to regional parks that are a short drive or bike ride away. Regional parks are located in high-quality, natural resource settings that adjoin lakes, rivers or other water bodies. Regional parks and trails draw visitors from across the metro area and beyond.
Crystal residents are fortunate to have one such regional park nearby. French Regional Park in Plymouth is located on Medicine Lake and is operated by Three Rivers Park District. The park district is updating the master plan for this park, and are looking for feedback from you. Learn more here
