Thief River Falls
Parks & Recreation




    Thief River Falls prides itself on its great city parks systems-one of the best in Northwestern Minnesota!  Observance of a few rules and regulations is requested by all users for the safety and enjoyment of everyone.  These regulations are as follows:

  • All City parks close at 11:00 p.m. This is for the safety of users and for consideration of nearby residents.

  • All alcoholic beverages are prohibited in the parks.

  • Vehicles are not allowed in the parks except in designated parking lots. Motorized vehicles are not allowed in parks, including park trail ways and field areas.

  • Please clean up after your pets. Pets are required to be leashed in the parks.

  • Please do not bring glass containers to the parks. Aluminum or plastic containers create less safety hazards. Broken glass is a safety hazard and maintenance problem.

  • Tennis courts are to be used for tennis play only. Skateboarding, hockey, rollerblading or other uses are not permitted since such play deteriorates the tennis facility. Tennis shoes are required in tennis court areas.

  • Compliance to these rules will assist in the enjoyment and safety of all users of the parks.
