Hyland Lake Park Reserve is part of a larger system recognized as “Hyland-Bush-Anderson Lakes Park Reserve.” The entire 2,565-acre complex is managed by the City of Bloomington and Three Rivers Park District. The City of Bloomington operates the Bush Lake and Normandale Lake facilities, while Three Rivers operates the Hyland and Anderson Lakes facilities.
The two agencies work together to coordinate regional trails in the area. Within the Anderson Lakes unit, there are two areas known as Anderson Lakes in Eden Prairie and Tierney’s Woods in Bloomington. Each provide parking and offer turf hiking trails to explore the spectacular vistas in the heart of our metropolitan area, as well as encounter abundant wildlife.
