Public input is vital to the success of this planning and design process: "The National Park Service is interested in knowing if our ideas are on the right track or missing important concepts," said Julie Galonska, St. Croix National Scenic Riverway Superintendent. At the meeting, the Park will provide a brief presentation describing the draft options, followed by an opportunity for the public to ask questions and share perspectives in an open house format.
Osceola Landing is the busiest National Park Service landing on the St. Croix River. Well known as the take-out point of the popular day trip from Minnesota or Wisconsin Interstate Park through the Dalles, the landing also provides access for motorized boats and paddlers headed downstream. Additionally, the day use area is a place for picnicking, fishing, walking, and enjoying the beauty of the river.
