Let's Visit Park Rapids: Industries and Recreation

Mainstreet Park Rapids

Let's Visit features communities in our listening area.  We recently visited Park Rapids, MN! Erin Cox is the Communications and Marketing Coordinator for Visit Park Rapids.  She provided insight on industries and recreation opportunities in and around Park Rapids.  She also discussed why Park Rapids is so appealing to both young families and retirees.  Ever wonder why the Park Rapids main street is so incredibly wide?  Listen to the segment to learn why!  Incidentally, Erin is another person who, after moving away from her hometown for several years, returned to raise her family in this small, active, artsy town.  Biking, hiking, arts, smowmobiling, fishing... Park Rapids has tons to offer! 

Katie Carter started at Northern Community Radio in 2008 as Managing Editor of the station's grant-funded, online news experiment Northern Community Internet. She returned for a second stint in 2016-23. She produced Area Voices showcasing the arts, culture, and history stories of northern Minnesota.
