The Myrick Park Center is a state-of-the-art nature center that hosts year round WisCorps environmental education and also serves as the ultimate venue for weddings, parties, and corporate events. Directly bordering the La Crosse River Marsh, stunning bluff views, and trail access to the Hixon Forest, it is easy to forget you are only 5 minutes from downtown La Crosse. 

The Myrick Park trail system connects to more than you think.  Bunny trails will take you to the Hixon Forest trails which connect to the top of the bluff and the human powered trails. Or, follow the Myrick trails on a bike out of the park, connect to the state trail system and ride all the way to Trempealeau in the north or Reedsburg to the east.

A wonderful park to explore a unique ecosystem in the middle of La Crosse. The marsh acts as a natural watershed of the Mississippi.

While hiking through Myrick Marsh watch for Great Egrets, Greenbacked Herons, a wide variety of waterfowl, Common Moorhens, terns, rails and wrens
