The Sartell area is blessed with an abundance of natural beauty.


The Mississippi and Watab Rivers flow through the middle of the city and serve as primary sources of natural beauty. Sartell’s Parks are also primary sources of beauty and provide many active and passive recreational opportunities for youth, seniors and families.

The City is continually challenged to keep pace with growing demands for park and recreational facilities. There is currently 11 acres of parkland per 1,000 residents, which meets the City goal of 10 acres of parkland per 1,000 residents.

Our Parks & Trails


Sartell has 28 active parks and a handful of natural greenways with approximately 48 miles of trails. The city’s trail system connects with community facilities as they are developed.
