It can’t be said enough, we are blessed with tremendous parks on our area! Unfortunately, we don’t have enough pages in this magazine to highlight all of them. So, here are a few that we think you absolutely must check out.
1. Orchard Glen Park, Fargo
Although you won’t find a traditional playground at Orchard Glen Park, this natural treasure trove is a must-visit for the whole family.
As a community provides plenty of oppurtunities to see birds and other wildlife in a natural setting along the banks of the Red River and offers visitors the oppurtunity to pick seasonal fruit free of charge.

2. Broadway Square, Fargo
Broadway Square is one of out fine city’s newest parks. Located at the corner of Broadway and 2nd Avenue N. in front of the Block 9 Tower, Broadway Square is here to serve as a powerful community gathering space. In the summer, it is a cozy turf area and in the winter it is a skating rink!
The park is already hosting great events like Fitness Fridays, Chalk Fest, Downtown Yoga, Music at the Square and much more this July.

3. Iwen Park, Fargo
