Swan Park - Mississippi Drive Park

Swan Park offers beautiful views of the Mississippi River all year, but it's most popular in the winter when it's home to 2,000 trumpeter swans. The swans typically arrive in Mid-November and stay until MN lakes thaw in the spring. Find out more about Monticello's famous swans!
