Park Size: 46.41 Acres
Description: Bob Cross Park is a regional park that provides the Sauk Rapids community and surrounding areas with many different activities. In the year 2000, the City rebuilt the softball fields, built a large concession building with restrooms and relocated the tennis courts. These improvements were done with the assistance of a DNR grant. The City renamed the active area the Sauk Rapids Athletic Complex. The last of the 4 softball fields were built in 2008 with generous funding assistance from the Softball Association. The association also extended the concession building's roof for shade and foul ball protection, built a small shelter for selling tickets and assisted in paying for an additional paved walkway. To the northwest of the ball fields, the Rotary Trail winds through a wetland/ nature area that is used for hiking and skiing. The southwestern area has a wading pool, playground equipment, and swings. Facilities: Softball, baseball, little league field, wading pool, 4 tennis courts, playground equipment, swings, restrooms, shelters, picnic tables, concessions, and a crushed aggregate Rotary Trail.
