The Sartell City Council has elected to phase temporary closures of Regional Parks impacted by the reconstruction of County Road 1 and lift station #2 in 2022.

Watab Park to close April 18th to November 30th: Construction for the project will impact the entrance and parking lot of the park, making it unsafe for resident or visitor use of the park space or amenities.

Linear Park to close April 18th to November 30th: This park will be impacted by every phase of construction. By closing this park, it will limit safety liability and allow the planned park improvements to be made.

Veterans Park to close June 1st to November 30th: The Memorial Day service will still happen at the park on May 30th. By closing the park, it will limit safety liability and allow the planned park improvements to be made.

Rotary Park to close August 1st to November 30th: Lift Station #2 is located in the center of this park and will be undergoing improvements this summer. The fishing pier will still be available to use until the end of July. By closing the park, it will limit safety liability and allow for the lift station improvements to be constructed. 

Police will be monitoring the parks for trespassers throughout the closed timeframe. Thank you for staying off of these properties to allow for a safe and efficient construction season.

The County Road 1 Road Reconstruct project will include an 8-foot-wide paved trail from Sartell Street to 12th Street North, multiple overlooks of the Mississippi River, a “new” pedestrian bridge, a facelift to Veterans Park, reconstruction of the parking lot at Watab Park, and safety measures throughout the entirety of the project. 

Construction will begin this spring and will be substantially completed late in 2022 with final paving to take place in spring 2023. Detour information will be provided soon. If you have any questions about the project, please email us at info@sartellmn.com.
