Why does Lindenwood Park continue to resonate with people?

“Lindenwood is the largest park in Fargo at 92 acres which means that there is something there for most everyone to enjoy year-round,” Fargo Park Board Vice President Joe Deutsch said. “With its location on the Red River, Lindenwood allows people to enjoy recreational activities with the ADA-compliant kayak launch, bike and kayak rentals, and the pedestrian bridge that provides access to Moorhead. It also boasts beautiful trails, impressive flower beds, a beautiful wooded campground, and hosts our pond hockey tournaments in the winter.”

How important is the maintenance of the facility to the Park District? 

“Last year, we completely renovated one playground and upgraded the rubber at the Rotary Playground, which was our area’s first fully adaptive playground for people of all abilities,” Deutsch said. “The five picnic shelters continue to be popular with our community and last year, we completely overhauled three of these shelters. If you take a trip there, you will see the care our parks staff takes in this wonderful park.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
