City of Spooner - Crossroads Of The North
 

Parks


The City of Spooner currently maintains seven developed parks. Some provide playground equipment and picnic tables. Others are just for picnicking and relaxation, while still others provide for varied multiple activities such as baseball, softball, football, basketball, hockey, broomball, skating and hiking/cross country skiing.

Larger groups wishing to reserve a portion of any of these parks for a specific day must call City Hall at 635-8769 to reserve that site and that date. Reservations of park sites are on a first come first serve basis.

College Street Park
Approximately 20 acres, College Street Park is located in the northwestern part of the city. It features three major league/little league baseball fields, an unpaved outdoor hockey rink, a free skating rink and a basketball court. The warming house has a changing area and toilet facilities.  The warming house phone number is 715-635-7227.  Included in the picnic area are a shelter with electrical outlets and a drinking fountain, picnic tables and benches and newly installed playground equipment. Also available is a 1.2 mile hiking/cross country ski trail with loops for beginners and intermediate skiers. A portion of the ski trail is lighted for night skiing; snow conditions permitting.  In 2010, a 1.4 mile paved trail linking the middle school with the high school and elementary school via the park was created. The trail connects with the hiking/skiing trails.  Benches were installed along the trail.  Frisbee Golf and exercise stations were added in 2011.
