New Thrive! Park [Nelson, WI] – Open for Public Hiking/Walking

New Thrive! Park [Nelson, WI] – Open for Public Hiking/Walking

Thrive! Park is a new public park of the Village of Nelson and was donated by Gary “Chris” Christopherson.

The Park is unique in that it consists of over 25 acres of Mississippi River bluff top and bluff side. The primary bluff is Three Sisters (northernmost Sister is private land) and Lost Brother. The three southernmost bluff tops (two of the Sisters and Lost Brother) are in the Park and accessible via hiking roads and trails.

On the bluff tops and bluff sides are “goat prairies” that have recently been cleared as part of a larger prairie restoration effort around Nelson. The prairie restoration removes invasive and non-prairie plants and releases prairie plants to flourish in their native habitat.

As shown on map [See Park map below], the Park consists of hiking roads (marked in red going along bluffside and back through valley). Also, there are several hiking trails (marked in green) that go to restored bluff and prairie areas and can be accessed off the main hiking roads. Signage in the Park serves as guides to roads and trails.

No hunting or trapping is allowed since this is a park and wildlife safety area.

Thrive! Park is located east of Highway 35 in Nelson (WI). Take Cleveland Street toward bluffs. As you enter woods, turn left on Christopherson Road. Just after turn, there is a parking lot on right to park. Park entrance and road/trail markings are just left of parking lot.Thrive Park 080116
