Dunn County Recreation Park
- Arena (Ice Hockey)
- Exhibition Buildings
- Lighted Ball Fields
- Picnic Areas
Size: 53.8 Acres
Facilities: Parking, restrooms year-round, picnic area, track, grandstand, arena (ice hockey) exhibition buildings, lighted ball fields, water, and electricity. This park is owned, operated, and maintained by Dunn County.
Service Area: Dunn County Recreation Park services the region at fair times and special events at other times of the year. The community uses the park for local events and recreational activities.
Natural Features: These include sandy soils that are reasonably well-drained and high hills on the south end of the site. These hills are heavily wooded in certain areas. Very little use has been made of the south entry road that defines the midway area at fair time. As the snow melts in the spring, it creates problems. The sandy soils absorb a great deal of water rapidly, but the flatness of the site near the arena area has created water problems.
Special Features: Ice arena, grandstand, track, and other exhibition structures.
Maintenance: There is intense use for short periods of time. Roads, as well as parking areas, need to be defined.
Signage: No entrance sign.
Access: Main Street entrance is well-defined. City of Menomonie Park Plan 2007-2012 64
Development Plan: Dunn County is responsible for the development plan. The internal reorganization would result in improved circulation and space utilization. The site should be programmed for more use. On-site circulation and space use need to be redefined. Future use plans should be developed in cooperation with the City, Menomonie School District, and UW-Stout.
