  • Veteran's Park | City Of Wahkon

    Veterans Community Walk of Honor Come stroll or sit a spell at Veterans’ Park and you’ll soon feel in touch with Wahkons history of service to community and nation. A fine resting spot for visitors, the park features memorials, evergreen-shaded benches, picnic tables and playground equipment for the kids. ​ Until just recently Veterans’ Park, anchoring the south end of Wahkon’s Main Street, was an occasionally used playground with an often overlooked memorial. Now the park at 505 N. Main Street welcomes visitors and residents with features both honoring veterans and community members, past and present, as well as offering a play area on Wahkon Bay. ​ Veterans’ Park’s life and focus changed when WAVE volunteers, Midway Garden Club and veterans groups banded together to create a Walk to Honor. Its pavers are donated by families of soldiers, sailors and airmen in remembrance of their service to their country. ​ The original park was marked with a small bronze plaque dedicated to the service of World War I veterans from the Wahkon area. Now it is a well-landscaped area with a walkway which was newly-dedicated in 2012 after nearly two years of effort by residents. The Walk to Honor continues to grow as the pavers are purchased by veterans and their family members for years to come. Notable are the blocks honoring vets who served during the World Wars, Korea, Vietnam, and through many years up to the Middle Eastern conflicts. Also underway is a path of Community Pavers dedicated to past and present community members who have been instrumental in developing and fostering the Wahkon area. The park’s transformation began with a volunteer crew enlisted to clear out brush and trees to leave the healthy evergreens to flourish. Volunteers and city staff also worked on the initial phases of the bridge connecting Veterans’ and City Parks. A sturdy culvert and rock landscaping helps direct the flow of a seasonal stream running into the lake. The work is just beginning for an ambitious project to continue not only the paved walks but the overall landscaping. Long-term plans also call for a black granite six-sided monument honoring all branches of the armed services. ​ Throughout the work and beyond, Veterans’ Park has been renewed as a favorite spot for visitors and locals alike to enjoy the broad vistas of Mille Lacs Lake. The entire site is lovingly maintained by volunteers and the city staff. Visitors are encouraged to help keep the site tidy. ​ Amenities include: Veterans Memorial Walk of Honor Walking Paths Evergreen-Shaded Benches Picnic Tables Playground Equipment ​ The Wahkon Area Vision Effusion (WAVE) Committee’s next project will be renovation of Wahkon’s Veterans Park located on South Main across from Walleye Dundee’s Resort. This is a big challenge and will take years to complete. Plans include new wall, landscaping, “Walk of Honor” path, stone bridge and a beautiful six-sided black granite monument honoring all branches of the armed forces. As far as we know, this is the only Veterans Park in the area. Download this brochure for more details . To order a paver for your friend or loved one, download the Walk to Honor Paver Form and follow the instructions. 1/1

  • Soo Line Trail | City Of Wahkon

    soo line trail One of the unique charms of Wahkon is its easy access to the 126-mile Soo Line Trail. It’s a year-round favorite of ATV riders, bicyclists, snowmobilers and cross country skiers. This easy trail follows much of the Soo Line Railroad grade as it wends itself from Saunders Junction, Wisconsin (near Superior), through the fields and forests of North Central Minnesota and eventually lands riders at Hwy. 10 in Royalton. (Please see links to DNR websites for details.) The importance of the historic rail line can be seen around every bend. Imagine seeing the places where freight was once unloaded for Mille Lacs area pioneers, since 1908, at small cities such as Wahkon and its neighbors, Isle to the north and Onamia to the south. ​ Modern-day explorers may jump off the trail as it intersects S. Main St., near Hwy. 27, Wahkon, to find a great place to take a rest at the Ellen Ruth Park. Your landmark is a fine old launch, painted red and white, which disembarked from the rail line in 1932 to ply the waters of the big lake until the late 1970s. Seeing this restored relic of days-gone-by is just the beginning of a fun day in the city which anchors Mille Lacs Lake’s southern shore. ​ To get started, Wahkon is easily traversed by biker or hiker on roads and trails, while the city streets are ATV friendly. Next to the park, wheeler riders or snowmobilers can fuel-up and get a cup of coffee, soda, convenience snacks and picnic items. Not far away are Wahkon’s friendly eating and drinking establishments well known for their generous meals and convivial atmosphere, favored by the locals, summer residents and tourists alike. City shopping includes a range of interesting stops including gift stores and a quilt shop. ​ Just off North Main St., travelers looking for a little relaxation may choose the two tidy waterfront venues, City Park and Veterans’ Park. From these perches, folks may enjoy an almost endless view of Wahkon Bay and its islands. ​ City Park features picnic shelters, spacious mowed lawn and a biffy. For the day-tripping angler a fishing pier and rustic boat launch ramp provide ample access to the water. ​ Veterans’ Park boasts a walk of honor for military and community honorees which was recently added by a cadre of volunteers. Bring the kids for a good time on the playground equipment, as well. Recent landscaping efforts have improved the park and made it very family-friendly. Nearby resorts offer a wealth of fishing or boating fun for those who decide to stay for a day on the lake. Lodging is also available locally for travelers or long-term visitors. ​ If you decide Wahkon is a starting off place on the Soo Line Trail, you’re never too far from Minnesota State Forests and lake recreational areas and from other more adventuresome byways and approved ATV trails. Just north of Isle, four-wheeler enthusiasts welcome the challenges of the Red Top ATV Trail, for example. ​ Once they’ve visited Wahkon, Soo Line Trail riders are often eager to return to this little gem on the lake. For more information, see the DNR’s website , or with materials on the trail as well as links to a PDF map . ​ (Material describing the trail was obtained from The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Information Center.)
