Parks & Recreation

Follow public health guidelines in parks

Osseo's parks, sidewalks, and trails remain open under the #StayHomeMN Order. While using these facilities, please be aware of the following information from Osseo Public Works:
  • Avoid close contact with others not in your household. The CDC recommends a minimum of 6 feet distance to help reduce the spread of coronavirus.

  • USE OF PLAYGROUNDS IS DISCOURAGED. Playgrounds have many surfaces that are not sanitized, so we recommend staying off them.

  • Do not gather in groups. While we pride ourselves on being a friendly community, please avoid social gatherings in our parks (and all locations) at this time.

  • We need your help to keep our parks safe. Stay home if you are sick. Practice good hygiene at all times. Wash your hands or use sanitizer before and after visiting parks. Avoid touching your face. Sneeze or cough into the inside of your elbow. Place garbage in trash receptacles.

Osseo Parks are Tobacco-Free

Osseo recently joined many other cities, counties, and districts that are tobacco-free. The City Council approved its Outdoor Parks and Recreational Facilities Tobacco-Free Policy at the June 13, 2011, Council meeting. This means there should be NO tobacco use of any kind in either Sipe Park or Boerboom Park in Osseo. Signs will be posted soon stating the parks are Tobacco-Free. See more information in the Policy Maker's Guide to Tobacco-Free Policies for Community Park Systems.

Boerboom Veterans Park

Located at Central Avenue and 4th Street in downtown Osseo, Henry J. Boerboom Veterans Memorial Park offers a bandshell where concerts and performances are held during the summer months, along with movies and music in the park each Tuesday evening throughout the summer. The park is shaded, has picnic tables, and is beautifully landscaped. Large monuments commemorate the names of residents who have served in several wars. Boerboom Park is directly east across the street from City Hall, 415 Central Avenue, Osseo.



Farmers Market


Osseo Farmers Market - Local vendors sell a wide range of fresh produce, baked goods, flowers and other goods. The Osseo Farmers Market is open during the summer season every Tuesday from 3:00 to 7:00 PM from July 7 to September 22 and is located on 5th Street NE off Central Avenue, just to the north of Boerboom Park, 416 Central Avenue. 

If you have any questions regarding the Osseo Farmers Market or would like to be considered as a vendor, call Karen at 763-425-2624, ext. 101 or email her at kbroden@ci.osseo.mn.us for the Guidelines and Application for Osseo Farmers Market.


Sipe Park

Located in the southeastern part of Osseo, Sipe Park is home to summer recreation activities. The park has tennis courts, a ball field, playground equipment, and lights. To reserve the ballfield for your use, please contact Public Services Director Rick Hass at 763-425-5741 or by email.


Summer Youth Sports


The City of Osseo has made the difficult decision to cancel all of the city’s planned summer recreation programs. This cancellation is due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our staff is in the process of processing refunds for all registrations. Refunds will be made to the credit or debit card used to register for the program. If you have not received your refund by May 4, please contact us by email or call 763-425-2624.

The City of Osseo has cancelled summer sports recreation programs for youth from ages 2 - 12. Follow this link for  information: www.discoverosseo.com/departments/parks-and-recreation/recreation-activities/

A separate summer recreation program is handled through the Osseo Maple Grove Athletic Association (Osseo School District). Please visit their website for more information.


Osseo Residents Enjoy Maple Grove Community Center at Reduced Rates

Swim at the Grove Cove Aquatic Center pools, play with your kids at the Indoor Playground, shoot some hoops in the Gymnasium, or put on some skates for gliding around the Ice Arena at the Maple Grove Community Center (MGCC).  Osseo and Maple Grove councils worked together to provide reduced rates so Osseo residents have two great ways to save money while taking advantage of the recreational opportunities offered at MGCC.  

One option is a reduced rate on a single or family annual membership.  Both All Building and Pool memberships are available.  The discount is available by signing up for the membership at Osseo City Hall and to pay in full. 


All Building












Another money-saving option for Osseo residents is to purchase ten-count coupon books at Osseo City Hall.  Each coupon is redeemable for one daily admission to the specific area.  You may also purchase a single coupon for one admission for any age.  The coupon books are a great value and the best part is ‑- they never expire!
