St. Cloud RiverWalk Master Plan

Lead by Mississippi Partners, the St. Cloud Rotary Club and the City of St. Cloud, the St. Cloud RiverWalk is envisioned to serve as a regional destination for active recreation and community events, while spawning interest in adjacent urban development.  The RiverWalk also provides an opportunity to restore the eroding shoreline.


Next year’s Minnesota Governor’s Fishing Opener will be held on the Mississippi River in the St. Cloud area, May 11-14, 2017. This will be the first time in the history of the Governor’s Fishing Opener that the event will be held in the St. Cloud area.

Explore Minnesota, the state’s tourism promotion office, organizes this event each year in coordination with a host community. The 70th annual Governor’s Fishing Opener will be hosted collaboratively by the communities of St. Cloud, Sauk Rapids and Sartell.
