Veterans Memorial Park, located on Johnson Ave. N., on the east side of Brooks Lake, has a variety of activities for people of all ages. The Cokato Kernels, a Minnesota Amateur Baseball team, hold their games at the baseball field in the summer. The park itself predates 1924 and has long been a source of recreation and amusement.
Reservations for the baseball field can be made through the City of Cokato.
Peterson Park, located on Broadway and Fourth Avenue, forms the hub of Cokato. The 4.8-acre park is adjacent to both the business district and the elementary school and is the site of many community activities. Peterson Park is also home to Cokato’s premier annual event, held in August, the Corn Carnival. The original 2 acres of the park was donated in 1930 by C. R. Peterson, an influential and community-minded man.
Playground equipment is open to the public outside of school hours. The picnic shelter may be reserved for events through the City Offices.
Young people can enjoy sports activities year-round at Mooers Avenue Park, located at Eighth Street and Mooers Avenue. In the winter, skaters making use of the hockey rink and the open skating rink can take a warm-up break in the warming house provided by the city.
