Dam opening 9

Coon Rapids Dam Re-opens

Closed since 2013 for a reconstruction project, the Coon Rapids Dam re-opened to the public on July 1st!

The dam is a walkway that links Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park (operated by Three Rivers Park District) on the west side of the river with Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park (operated by Anoka County) on the east side of the river. The dam was undergoing rehabilitation to make it a more effective barrier against the migration of invasive fish species, a top priority for the DNR over the past few years. 

This regional park is a great spot to fish, bike, enjoy a picnic, and explore. Read more about this great park>>
