Roseau News

A few places in Roseau have been getting a facelift!

The Gilbertson Ball field has a brand new arch that looks incredible and will be a wonderful way to invite other cities to come play us once baseball season starts up again in spring.

The warming house at the Memorial Arena has been upgraded with tongue and groove interior siding and new water fountains, as well as upgrades to the trophy cases.

We’ve also been working to complete the Riverview Park vision — including completing the landscaping at the skatepark, adding a fence near the basketball court and adding a skating rink. The skating rink will be available as soon as it’s complete this winter! Don’t forget while you’re skating to check out the sledding hill down the walking trail.

This winter, the Parks and Rec Department is also planning to offer cross-country ski trails at Oak Crest Golf Course. We are looking for someone that would be interested in starting a trail club that meets every so often to get together and use the trails! If this is something you’re interested in, please contact Sara Hamman at 242-0063.

New Parks and Rec Director

Meet your New Parks and Rec Director!

Hello! I’m Sara Hamman and I am the new Parks and Rec director for the City of Roseau! 

I grew up in Grand Rapids, MN and spent many of my summers in Roseau ending the summer hockey camp as a goalie. Last May I moved my three daughters, Bryjah, Remi and Samantha, to Roseau to get a fresh start and to establish a life in the small town that I love so much. 

As a young adult, I was very involved in our town’s rec programs and I have a deep passion for sports, outdoors and children’s activities. I accepted this position in September, and I am very much looking forward to growing and improving the Parks and Rec program here in Roseau!
