Warroad Point Regional Park

Warroad, MN

Warroad Point Regional Park is a premier community and regional destination at the confluence of the Warroad River and Lake of the Woods. The park is an active waterfront hub for boaters, campers, and community gatherings. Amidst growing use and changing recreational trends, Damon Farber was engaged to develop a master plan to guide future development, support conservation, secure funding, and celebrate the premier Lake of the Woods location. The plan reclaims culturally and ecologically significant shoreline previously dominated by vehicular use and reorients park programming to prioritize pedestrian access to the lake. Relocated boat launch & parking facilities allow for the addition of pedestrian oriented spaces including boardwalks, fishing piers, overlooks, trails and picnic shelters along the shore. Restored native landscapes celebrate northern ecosystems and contribute to the park’s unique identity. Camping areas are improved and relocated for access and privacy. Overnight use is expanded with remote tent sites, yurts and camper cabins. The master plan also laid the groundwork for receiving Regional Park designation via the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trail Commission. As of 2024, phase one of work is underway and the entire plan is expected to be executed over the next ten years.
