Rich in history, this environmental park is open to the public for hiking, rustic camping, and events. There are many walking trails and a footbridge crossing the Leaf River. The park also features a Bogwalk stretching from one side of the bog to the other. Educational learning stations on wetlands animal and plant life are stationed throughout the Bogwalk.
The annual Old Wadena Rendezvous festival is held the 2nd weekend in August.
