Community Park

The 7.2- acre city-wide park, with playground, grills and all season pavilion, is a popular park with area residents. Located just north of Waite Park City Hall, on 13th Avenue North, Community Park doubled in size in 2002. The expanded park now contains the Park Pavillion, a popular location for graduations, reunions, and weddings. The Pavillion seats 80 in its climate controlled interior and more than 200 under its awning. Along with a kitchen facillty (set up to serve both inside and outside), restrooms, and meeting facilities, a TV and VCR are also available.

 
Lions Park

The park includes a shelter with restrooms, picnic tables, grills, a picnic area, a fenced tennis court, a basketball court and play equipment.  Two ponds exist in the park.  The city of St. Cloud handles all reservations for Lions Park.

 
Quarry Park and Nature Reserve

This 643-acre regional, county owned park is located along County Road 137 and Seventh Street South.  The park features oak woodland, oak forest, wet meadow, wet prairie, bluff lands, rock outcroppings and granite quarries.  A Scientific Nature Program acquired a conservation easement from Stearns County to permanently protect this site.  Red Shouldered Hawk, which are listed as a special concern in Minnesota, nest within Quarry Park.  Plant life includes everything from Oaks and aspens to yellow lady slippers, Indian paintbrush, prickly pear cactus and the tubercled rein orchid.

 
River's Edge Park

The park contains three ball fields with dug-outs,  one with seating, a batting cage, concession stand and picnic tables.  Restrooms and drinking fountains are present.  The park is used throughout the year.  Winter recreation includes hockey and figure skating rinks with a warming house.  The park is available for picnics and roller hockey during the rest of the year.  Disc golf and a soccer field are available, as well as off-street parking and fishing in the Sauk River. 

 
Rock Island Park

Rock Island Park features amenities typical of a passive recreational area including paved trails and benches surrounding a regional storm water pond.  The Rock Island pond is suitable for fishing and the site of the annual Spass Tag fishing tournament.  Rock Island Park is handicap accessible and features a picnic area, horseshoe pits, barbecue grills and a playground.
