Fourth Avenue Park
Renovated in 2015, this park provides playground equipment and green space for families and is located on the
north end Fourth Avenue between Gilbert Street and Cardinal Drive.
Main Street Park
This Main Street park is situated next to the St. Anthony Medical Clinic and Park View Assisted Living on Main
Street. Besides playground equipment and green space for children, the park includes a gazebo with outdoor grill
and a shuffleboard court. There is also a public restroom available.
From Riverside Park, guests can access the Carroll County Trail where
they can bike, walk or run along the Middle
Raccoon River. The park also offers direct access to the Middle Racoon
River. The location is a popular entry point
for kayaks and canoes as well as fishermen. The sandy beach below the
rapids is a good spot for local kids to take a
dip in the river. The park is located off of E63 on the northeast edge
of Coon Rapids just east of the Sumpter Avenue
Bridge. Connected to the park and a short drive up E63 is the Riverside
Park (Hilltop) Campground that offers full-hookups and a bathhouse.

of Afghanistan to honor five fallen soldiers of the 375th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion. One of those

roadside bomb. Later in 2012 the names of two more fallen soldiers were added. Inspired by the National 9/11
Memorial, the monument consists of a small reflecting pool with fountain, a five-foot-tall Freedom Tower made out
of reinforced concrete covered with mirrored plexiglass and a concrete wall measuring seven feet covered with
