Fox LogoIn the late 1970's and early 1980's, a small group of people became very involved with Oxbow Park.

The idea of a new park for Olmsted County was fostered by the Olmsted County Park Board and residents of the park area. The initial 465 acres of land were purchased in 1967. 


The Oxbow Park Zollman Zoo displays only native Minnesota wildlife. Park staff and Friends members are proud to house these animals in exhibits that are humane and fiscally prudent, but also stimulate lifelong interest and learning in our visitors.  Our "Wildcat Exhibit" has been completed and the cats are on display for your enjoyment.
