There is a small lake with a fishing pier right across from the children's play area, which also would be a good experience for them. Haven't tried to fish there yet. Lots of turtles basking themselves in the heat of the day on logs in the water. The park is conveniently located to Highway 61 which runs right through Cottage Grove. The Ravine Regional Park is a beautiful oasis south of the Cities.
The main trails are wide and well maintained.

It is a 3 mile walk from the new Washington Co Service Center to the small lake. Near the lake are picinic tables and a playground.

It is very pretty in the Ravine year round. Their are paths through the trees for hiking and cross country sking. The asphalt paths are great for walking and biking. Try it, you'll love it!

It is worth the trip. From the very nice picnic area one has access to a series of trail loops ranging up to several miles. Lots of up and down hiking through the woods, and one short piece along the lake by the picnic grounds. As you enter the park there is a sign diverting you to the left to go to a lookout area; we were not able to find the lookout area, but did find a rough trail through an overgrown field that was pleasant.
I would suggest focusing on starting from the picnic area and enjoying the established trails. Great children's play area. No swimming allowed at the lake, but there is a fishing dock that some people were enjoying the afternoon we were there.
