Burlington Northern Park 

Located in the heart of Wadena's business district (100 Aldrich Ave. SW), Burlington Northern Park surrounds The 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's Corn & 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 bandshell, picnic area, flowers and fountain, and a community bulletin board.
