New Brighton Gnome Hunt

Signature Event

November 17, 2021 - November 28, 2021 Hansen Park

The New Brighton Gnomes are getting settled in town for the winter.

The Gnomes are starting off the season back at Hansen Park, but heads up- they’re occupying a different and longer trail than they did last time!

Park in the lot at Hansen Park (1555 5th ST. NW, New Brighton), and hike North (opposite direction of tennis court or trail on left when you pull into the parking lot) following the signs. There are 13 gnomes hidden along the trail, which is just under a mile long.

Take a picture or selfie with one of the gnomes and post on Facebook with the hashtag #newbrightongnomes to be entered into a drawing. Then, follow the signs to head back to your car, or do some more exploring around the park!

The marked loop for the gnome hunt is just under a mile long. Most of the trail is paved, but there is a short section that is a boardwalk and gravel.

The gnomes will be out at Hansen Park from Wednesday, November 17 at 10am until Sunday, November 28.
Please do not touch, take, or move the gnomes.
