Park
“Beautiful spot to check out in the winter, amazing cross country skiing tracks around. If you brought your skates, you can skate on this gorgeous frozen-over lake... I believe you can rent skates at Mallards Sports in town as well. If you want to go skating outside but don't want to go out to Cottonwood, also check out Lions Park just up the hill in Nelson- they also have an outdoor rink there. ”
