Chaska Parks and Recreation Newsletter- October 2019


We hope this finds you enjoying the fall season. This is a great time of year to explore the beautiful trail system by walking, biking or running with family or friends. Fall programs and events are underway with some SPOOKTACULAR opportunities later this month!

How are we doing?

Recreation Survey

The City of Chaska Parks and Recreation Department is conducting a survey to get a better understanding of community needs and interests in respect to recreation and leisure activities. We appreciate your feedback!

Your feedback can be given through this online survey. Survey available through October 18th.

Trail Wayfinding Pilot Project

The City of Chaska has partnered with Carver County and the City of Victoria to conduct a trail wayfinding pilot project. The intent of this project is to test some signage out on the trails and get feedback to help inform us before installing a permanent trail wayfinding system. There are essentially two routes:
Orange Loop: 5.75 mile route in Chaska, including the downtown area
Green Line: 9 mile route connecting the downtown areas of Carver, Chaska and Victoria
We encourage you to get out on your bike and try these routes! Your feedback can then be given through this online survey. Survey available through October 18th.
