> Sucker Lake Park is located in Vadnais Heights between highway 95 on the 
> north and County Road F, east of Rice Street. There are 2 parking lots. 
> The northern one off Rice Street is closed in the winter. The southern one 
> off County F is open.
> From the south parking lot follow the paved trail north for about 1/4 mi 
> to a marked path on the right (east). Take this path about 100 yards to

> The swans and mallards in the channel are quite tame and you sometimes can 
> approach them within 5 or 10 feet. (Some people feed them.) If you get too 
> close they calmly paddle to the opposite side of the channel, about 20

> Alternately, the trumpeters may be at the north end of Sucker Lake. This
