Pond-Dakota Mission Park


If you enjoyed River Rendezvous in September, don’t miss this chance to experience beautiful Pond Dakota Mission Park in the winter season! Learn about tracking animals from a Dakota instructor, Harlan LaFontaine, while exploring Pond Dakota Mission Park. Fur trade re-enactor Lyle Emme will demonstrate how traps were used on the frontier and display his collection of furs.

Warm up with cocoa and cookies by the fireplace in the historic Gideon and Agnes Pond House, then practice your tracking skills while playing Animal Track Bingo — complete with prizes! Gideon and Agnes Pond, portrayed by costumed re-enactors, will give tours of the house.

For more information, call Bloomington Parks and Recreation at 952-563-8693.
