The Mighty Mississippi River
One of the world's great rivers, the Mississippi trickles from Minnesota's Lake Itasca, gathering the waters of the nation's heartland as it flows to the Gulf of Mexico. On its timeless journey, the river weaves together the lives of people from the past, present, and future.The Mississippi River remains a source of pride and enjoyment, both locally and nationally. Join us at the river!

Coon Rapids Dam
Hike the walkway behind you—-it leads to the dam and across the river, offering spectacular views! Watch for wildlife. The dam was built in 1913 for power and rebuilt for recreational use in 1996.

"The face of the river, in time, became a wonderful book?And it was not a book to be read once and thrown aside, for it had a new story to tell every day."
Mark Twain
