There’s an energy flowing through our communities — a current that began long before the earliest settlers first called the area home, and one that continues to shape our future. The Mississippi River has always been a focal point of life here in Central Minnesota, for all of the opportunities it provides for residents, commerce, and visitors alike.
Mississippi Partners was created to promote the Mississippi River and the St. Cloud Urban Area Mississippi River Corridor Plan — or, the “River Plan” for short. The plan is the result of a coordinated effort by the cities of St. Cloud, Sartell and Sauk Rapids to maintain the Mississippi River as a regional asset through sustainable utilization and stewardship.
The St. Cloud RiverWalk Master Plan is underway! Lead by Mississippi Partners, the St. Cloud Rotary Club and the City of St. Cloud, the St. Cloud RiverWalk is envisioned to serve as a regional destination for active recreation and community events, while spawning interest in adjacent urban development. The RiverWalk also provides opportunity to restore the eroding shoreline.
