Stearns County is advancing its plans to acquire a 253.11 acre tract of land located south of Cold Spring along the Chain of Lakes. The new park is expected to have far-reaching benefits for the surrounding community, including an increase in visitors from other regions, leading to a boost in local commerce. The park will offer a wide range of amenities, including:
Public hunting grounds
Hiking and walking trails
5400' of additional public waterfront access
Colonial waterbird nesting areas
Kinzer Creek - Designated trout stream
A new boat launch for the public
Additional picnic areas for the community
These additions will enhance recreational opportunities for both residents and visitors, making the ROCORI area even more appealing and providing even more reasons to stay and explore the area.
Please note that this project is in the planning phase and everything at this point is subject to change.
