• City of Parkers Prairie

    Parkers Prairie is called “The Gateway to Otter Tail County” because of its location at the SE corner of Otter Tail County.  The city was established in 1903 and currently has a population of just over 1,000 people.

    City Clerk, Beth Wussow, says Parkers Prairie is a small city with a lot to offer! The city is located on beautiful Lake Adley and is home to the Prairie Event Center.  The Center can host up to 500 people for events and weddings and partners with the Grandstay Hotel.  Lake Adley Park has a public fishing pier and boat ramp, along with a large shelter and tent-camping sites.  The downtown hosts City Park, complete with the new outdoor aquatic center.

    Two years ago, the city of Parkers Prairie went through a MN DOT Complete Streets Project, and also has newly renovated streets and sidewalks.  There are more than 5 miles of walking/biking paths that lead to scenic Lake Adley Park. 

    Parkers Prairie hosts the annual “Fall Festival”, which will be held this year August 2-4. The Festival offers 3 days of entertainment and activities for people of all ages.  The Parkers Prairie Fire Department Relief Association will kick off the fun with a bull riding event on Friday, with a dance to follow.  Activities and fireworks in the park on Saturday and a parade on Sunday.
