CITY PARKS

ATHLETIC FIELD

Located at the foot of the Interstate Bridge on Grant Boulevard. The

Athletic Field features tennis and basketball courts, a skateboard

park, volleyball courts, baseball and softball fields, restrooms, and

house for the adjacent ice skating and hockey rinks that are open

after school and weekends.

Located on the west end of Main Street.

This park is situated on the Mississippi River with a large beach

area. The park often hosts weddings and private romantic dinners

in the park’s new Gazebo. Walking paths will wind you through

the park, passing the picnic shelter with views of the marina. A

campground with 48 seasonal sites and three transient sites is

adjacent to the park with modern restrooms and showers.

BRUEGGER MEMORIAL PARK

Located on the west side of town on Gambia Avenue.

Approximately two acres in size, families will find a playground for

children, picnic shelter, and picnic tables.

CANNON PARK

Located just off Hiawatha Drive East.

This park features a prominent WWI cannon from the early 1900s.

The cannon was almost destroyed but, thanks to community

members, was placed in the park and has become

a landmark near the middle of town.

DENNIS PFEILSTICKER

MEMORIAL PARK

Located off Hiawatha Drive East next to the city pool.

This park commemorates Dennis Pfeilsticker, a local ambulance

emergency medical technician who served the citizens and the

youth of Wabasha for many years. Using memorials, his family

sponsored the playground equipment in his memory. Adjacent to

the park is the city pool, which features three waterslides and a

kiddie pool open early June through Labor Day Weekend.

Great for any function.

we don’t have a stoplight anywhere in town!

Originally donated to the city in the early 1900s, later the park

from the community, the park was restored to its original look,

featuring a fountain, walkway, entrance posts, antique lighting and

flower gardens.
