Email News Alerts

The Wadena City Council is applying for another DNR trail grant, in hopes of finishing improvements on the Leaf River bike trail. The council approved an application during the Aug. 15 regular council meeting.


In 2010, the city received a $200,000 grant to improve the Leaf River bike trail that runs from Sunnybrook Park to the Whitetail Run Golf Course area, along U.S. Highway 71.

In following months, the trail improvement project ended up costing more than anticipated.
