See how we are improving Hidden Valley Park
Hidden Valley Park is one of the most used parks in Savage. This 45 – acre community park located down in the valley off Glendale Rd. and 132nd St. is unique because of its natural aesthetics and rich history. The Credit River runs through the park and offers excellent opportunities for gatherings, walking, and picnicking. Recently, several major improvements were made, to make this park even more enjoyable.
- New pedestrian bridge. The new bridge replaces the old wooden bridge on the north side. This was funded in part by a grant from the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC).
- Expanded archery range. This is the only public archery range in town. Improvements include new bow racks, a designated, concrete shooting line, and five shooting stations with targets ranging from 20 – 60 yards for recreational target shooting and bow siting.
- Repaved parking lot. The much-needed repaving of the parking lot will begin July 1 - August. Curb and gutter will be added to improve stormwater drainage and lights will be added for safety and convenience. The parking lot will be closed to cars during the repaving.
- More green space. The ballfield has been repurposed into flexible green space for park guests to enjoy playing frisbee, catch, yard games, and to enjoy the abundant natural habitat.
During the COVID -19 crisis, our parks have offered a much-needed respite and we love seeing residents spending even more time in parks than usual. We invite you to check out all that Hidden Valley Park has to offer!
