Doyle-Kennefick is a planned regional park located in Central Scott County between St. Catherine and Lennon Lakes. Volunteers will plant native shrubs and flowers by the shoreline to restore the wetland area along the 1860s farm.

This future park is currently in the acquisition and stewardship phase. Once fully acquired, it will include 1,139 acres of striking landscape including native hardwood forest, oak savanna, prairie, and pristine wetlands scattered across a rolling glacial topography. Planned amenities include a nature center/outdoor discovery center, 13 miles of hiking and nature trails, 8 miles of bike trails, picnic shelter, trail head, and renovation and re-use of farmstead structures.

Partners and Funders:
Scott County, Three Rivers District, Outdoor Heritage Fund, National Turkey Federation, and Scott-Le Sueur MN Waterfowl Association
