A Regional Park in the Zumbro Watershed could increase visitors and tourism in the region and increase spending in local economies. It could also provide more recreation areas for residents and improve our quality of life. Learn how the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks Commission could help get local partners plan and develop a regional park in our own backyard.
