About the Park
Located ¼ miles east of Minnesota Highway 25 on the north side of U.S. Highway 10. Parking for pedestrian trail users is located at the Sherburne History Center. Trails can be accessed from History Center Trail.
The Oak Savanna Park is a living legacy of the conservation ethic lived out in the lives of Bill and Margaret Cox. In 1997, these 140 acres were gifted to the County for the use and enjoyment of people in the community and forever protected in the MN Land Trust.
Since acquisition, the County has worked to manage the land in a way that protects and enhances the rare plant communities that are found here.
In addition, more than 4 miles of hiking through diverse native prairie, pine plantation, oak forest and oak savanna, offer visitors an opportunity to recreate in a natural setting.
Equestrian visitors can enjoy a designated parking area for trailers and nearly 2.5 miles of trails through native prairie, pine plantation, oak forest and oak savanna.
Both the hiking and equestrian trails connect to Becker City Park for additional riding and hiking!
Trail Construction April 25th through June 24th
Sherburne County is starting work to construct an accessible surface trail loop from the Sherburne History Center to the Historic Fox House Exhibit! Only a portion of the Oak Savanna Park Trail System will be closed – see map here.
