Why we love Lindenwood Park:

Lindenwood Park is right in the heart of Fargo and not too far from downtown.

As the largest multi-use park in Fargo, there’s lots of green space for picnicking or just to roam around and enjoy nature. 

With two separate playground areas there are options to move on if one gets too crowded.

The Universal Playground is a fully-adaptive playground for people of all abilities.

Large trees provide ample shade throughout the park.

Learn more about trees that are native to our area with a self-guided tree tour. Check out this link to the Lindenwood Park Tree Tour and Map.

Cross state lines by going over the pedestrian bridge. It will take you over to Minnesota to Gooseberry Park. Please note that sometimes the bridge is not in operation due to high waters.

Good to know:

Restrooms are available onsite.

There’s a boat ramp and landing to access the Red River from Lindenwood Park.

The park sometimes floods in the Spring, so keep that in mind if visiting in April or May.
