Point Douglas Park

 
     
 

Overview

 
 

Point Douglas Park consists of a narrow mowed grass strip, a swimming beach, and a large parking lot on the west (south) bank of the St. Croix River. It offers picnic tables, grills, restrooms, and a fishing pier. It is a wayside rest but also a Washington County park.

The main attraction for naturalists comes in the winter, when the water often remains open. This is a good site to see wintering waterfowl.
