What's New In Osseo? 




Osseo Can Enjoy Maple Grove Community Center at Resident 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 and to pay in full at Osseo City Hall. The discounted Osseo rates are listed below.

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!

The seven Great Places recognized were: Grand Rounds (Minneapolis), cited as truly a legacy, born of a vision that has remained relevant over time; CHS Field (Saint Paul), praised as a place that hits all the marks – attractive, urban beautiful, modern, inviting and a great fit for an urban setting; Osseo Downtown (Osseo), called well done, a place with great community feel, with ample landscaping to soften the hardscape, a lovely central park and great small scale; Silverwood Park (St. Anthony), called peaceful and contemplative with a unique focus of using art to connect people with nature; Gale Woods (Minnetrista), hailed as an agricultural legacy, beautifully maintained, with excellent programming that provides an important opportunity for kids to learn the source of their food; Chestnut Plaza (Saint Paul), highlighted for its beautiful modern detail, its simplicity, great connectivity to trails, connection to downtown and link to the river; IDS Parklot, described as a lively gathering spot, well used in an area devoid of seating, finally providing a place to eat lunch outside downtown. These seven were selected among the 21 nominations received, representing a wide range of place types throughout the region, from temporary to legacy, urban to suburban, and  small to large.
