Welcome to the Great River Road Visitor and Learning Center at Freedom Park in Prescott, Wisconsin. Located at the northern gateway to Wisconsin’s Great River Road, a National Scenic Byway, the Center overlooks the scenic upper Mississippi River Valley where the St. Croix River enters the mighty Mississippi. Stroll our trails, see the blue waters of the St. Croix mix with the brown Mississippi waters, enjoy our educational native plant gardens, and look for raptors, migrating birds and other wildlife at this Audubon Birding site and Watchable Wildlife site.

Mission — Great River Road Visitor & Learning Center
To provide high quality educational programs which create an appreciation of this community’s unique place at the confluence of the Mississippi and St. Croix rivers.
