Gateway to the Lakes
With nine parks, Chisago City offers many outdoors spaces to visit. Centrally located in the town is Moberg Park, which pays tribute to Swedish author Vilhem Moberg who traveled the area on bike in the 1950s and wrote, The Emigrants, a fictional story series about Swedish characters Karl Oscar and Kristina Nilsson. Snap your picture next to Vilhem’s statue and attend one of the many seasonally inspired events, including the town celebration of Ki Chi Saga Days in August.
Chuckie Lundquist Park, with its skateboard area, ice rinks, and paved trails is a popular gathering place for both youth and adults. Paradise Park, host to the Chisago Lakes Triathlon, offers a great place to swim, fish and picnic. Ojiketa Regional Park, formerly a Camp Fire Girl Camp, with its 70 acres of woods, cabins and shoreline, is a serene place to get in touch with nature. At Ojiketa, walk the wooded trail, lounge on the sandy beach, and ring the old girl scout dinner bell.
It’s all yours to explore in Chisago Lakes.
