“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons”.
Although you may feel inclined to spend the crisp, cool days of fall inside, the beauty and colors of fall are an exceptional reason to spend your days and evenings in the great outdoors. Menomonie will quench your thirst for adventure with its abundance of breathtaking landscapes to explore. The following activities work to promote environmental sustainability by allowing you to spend time outside and connect with nature. They also are made to be accessible to all ages and athletic ability, including those with a physical or mental disability. This vision of “Three Perfect Days” in the fall outdoors in Menomonie focuses on using justice to promote community leisure activities.

The norms and values that exist within leisure are defined by the individuals within their activities. The role of justice in society shapes a community’s happiness, security, and freedom. These leisure activities, such as hiking or biking the Red Cedar Trail, fishing or water activities on Lake Menomin, playing lawn games, or cooking out at Wakanda or Wilson Park help build a community and provide people with a happy outlook through secure and safe areas that give them authority over their free time. John Stuart Mill regards utilitarianism as justice where reality is defined by individual rights to their own definitions of pain and pleasure through their activities. However, this human behavior is defined from both preferences and choice anddoing the greatest good for the greatest number of people. The Menomonie community has designed outdoor public spaces, such as parks, trails, and docks, so that people have a safe and enjoyable community to spend their time. This must be balanced by recognizing that all such leisure activities must prioritize the greatest good and not just what someone personally enjoys, and we encourage you all to recognize this as you explore and enjoy Menomonie!
