Keeping Cool in Cokato

With the summer heat upon us, we thought we’d share some ideas on how to keep cool in Cokato.

1) Ice Cream! We’re fortunate to have many options when it comes to this cool treat. Here are some local spots that offer it:

  • Dairy Queen

  • The Grounds

  • Broadway B’s

  • Bait n’ Hook

  • Ice Cream Truck - said to be seen in Cokato on Thursdays

Find more options by typing "ice cream" in the Search bar in the Business Directory.


2) Local Beaches and Lakes

The most popular ones are Collinwood Beach in Collinwood Park and the beach at Brooks Lake Park. Find more info on the Parks, Lakes, and Trails page.



3) Cokato Public Library

Enjoy a book or activity (not to mention air-conditioning) at our local library. The library staff have summer on their minds as well; try one of their cool recommendations they’ve selected and put on display. Kids will have fun trying the weekly activities.


4) Cokato Museum

Just below the library, you’ll find an especially cool spot to visit in the Cokato Museum. Check out the elaborate and fascinating exhibits that tell the stories of Cokato’s history. Kids will also enjoy the museum scavenger hunt.



5) Cokato Community Pool

The pool has kept many Cokato residents and visitors cool since 1992. The kiddie pool and shallow end are perfect for the younger kids. There is a deep end with jumping board. Lap swim and pool rentals are also available. You can find more info regarding rates and hours here.


6) D-C High School Pool

Open swim, lap swim, and rentals offered. Find more info on the school web site here.


7) Local Patios

1) Bait & Hook (also has a summer music schedule)

2) Iron Horse Grill & Saloon

3) Dairy Queen
