Luverne Parks

 
 

The Luverne City Park is a lush, shady area on the east end of Main Street in the curve of the Rock River.  It's the perfect spot for a picnic and a great place to let the kids burn off some energy!  Filled with all kinds of slides, monkey bars, swings, etc., it's a favorite spot for kids and parents. 


Just across the Rock River, many Luverne residents enjoy playing tennis on the well maintained courts, there is a skateboard park, and Luverne's outstanding "Redbird Field" baseball facility.  Riverside Park (across the highway) is the home to two softball diamonds and another playground area for the kids.

 

 

 In addition to the City Park, Luverne maintains 11 neighborhood  parks:

As part of the south Highway 75 improvement projects , the Luverne Rotary Club chose as their contribution the development of a park north of Subway. Henning Construction donated fill and performed the necessary site work. The Public Works Department seeded the area. The Luverne Rotary Club raised money and received some grant funding that was used to purchase picnic table, benches, waste receptacles and a piece of play equipment. Additional fund raising is planned so the Rotary Club Members can purchase and plant some trees, flowers, and bushes in the park.
