Its multiple routes up a 200-foot flow offer sweet some choices, and best of all, this park is free and right inside the city limits of Winona. That means when you are done with your climb, a beer, a band, and a bed are five minutes away. It couldn’t be more perfect. 

Winona is serious about ways to play – even in winter. Even better, we’re an easy drive from the Twin Cities, Madison, Milwaukee, Chicago, and Des Moines, making us the perfect weekend destination for winter sports lovers.
