Sound of Music by GREAT Theatre

Experience one of the greatest musicals ever at GREAT Theatre as beautiful songs fill the air. The Sound of Music production runs from November 19 to November 28.

St. Cloud parks offer great opportunities for you and your family to get out into nature. Local parks provide hiking trails to traverse on a sunny Minnesota day, and these are the nature spots nearby that we recommend.

Munsinger Gardens

Munsinger Gardens sits along the banks of the Mississippi River across from St. Cloud State University. Miles of winding paths give you a chance to get out into the fresh air and sunshine without traveling very far. They’re open daily during the spring, summer, and fall.

Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge

There is plenty of nature to see at the Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge. It is a wildlife sanctuary through August 31, and offers hiking trails, fishing spots, and a canoe route. Some areas are open to hunting after September 1, so check the park website for information before you go. The refuge is open from sunrise to sunset every day in season.

Quarry Park and Nature Preserve

Spanning 684 acres, Quarry Park and Nature Preserve is the largest park in Stearns County. The land consists of woodlands, prairies, wetlands, and rock formations, with many species of native plants here.  The Park is open from 8:00 AM to sunset year-round, and parking permits are required.
