An Oasis for Gardeners – Atkinson

Atkinson is a farming community located on U.S. Highway 6 and conveniently off I-80.   Atkinson offers a nice alternative to the hustle and bustle of city life as a choice for all ages and lifestyles. With access to the Hennepin Canal State Parkway, visitors enjoy biking, fishing, horseback riding, and boating all year long.  Join us for a fun-filled day at the annual Heritage Day in August where our heritage is for everyone! Relax under a shade tree, take in the car show, or a game of rolle bolle.
