Colorful, quirky, sometimes towering sculptures guide you along a pastoral one-mile loop. The Anderson Center is one of Red Wing’s biggest secrets, but not for long. Drive out Highway 61 to the western edge of town and you’ll see the brick tower. Kids are encouraged to touch, run, and explore.
Bronze statues of children at play watch over the river's barges as they maneuver “the sharpest turn in the Mississippi." Bay Point is a favorite because the flat, paved loop provides some of Red Wing's most beautiful views. Multiple benches provide places to chat and take in scenes of riverboats, barges, gulls, Barn Bluff, and the historic boathouses.
Levee Park shows off an art-deco depiction of the river, a playful jester sculpture, the rose-lined mayor's circle, and the Veteran’s Memorial, a contemplation of a soldier's military and civilian life. Five times around this scenic loop equals a mile. If you want more, the beginning of the new Riverfront Trail starts adjacent to the park and will lead you along the river to Bay Point Park.
