Located in the heart of Wadena's business district (100 Aldrich Ave. SW), Burlington Northern Park surrounds our depot, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is perhaps the most valued spot in the community and is the stage for many summer activities that bring the community together. Rotary Corn and Chicken Feed and the Lion's Bar-b-que help to celebrate and reinforce our friendly, close knit community right in the heart of Minnesota. The park includes a band shell, picnic area, flowers and fountain, and a community bulletin board. For information and reservations call 218-631-7707.
