Parks and Recreation offers a variety of recreational amenities for the community including open spaces, trails, athletic fields, playgrounds, and indoor spaces.
Elk River has 41 parks and one conservation area with a total of 1,388 maintained acres. These parks are in various stages of development. The city strives to strike a balance between development of parks and acquisition of land; the goal is to serve the current population yet ensure that future generations will have wild and scenic areas to enjoy.
Parks and Recreation Master Plan
The city has adopted a Parks and Recreation Master Plan that serves as a guide for acquisition and development of parks and trails. Athletic complexes serve the needs of both youth and adult sports. Elk River has a conservation area, mountain bike park, cross-country ski trails, and a biathlon course as well as the traditional neighborhood parks with play equipment and sports courts.
