Peninsula Point Two Rivers Historical Park

Peninsula Point was once a sewage treatment plant. In 1995, with a grant from the Legislative Commission on Minnesota Resources, the city of Anoka began to administer the area and turned it into the beautiful Peninsula Point Two Rivers Historical Park.Peninsula Point Park is a historical site located at the junction of the Rum and Mississippi Rivers in Anoka, MN (north of Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park).

Eight historical markers can be seen at this park, as well as the State Champion "Green Ash" Heritage Tree (shown at right). Educational signs along the footpath explain both the environmental interpretation and the historical importance of the park.

Picnic areas are available at Peninsula Point Park with both open and sheltered picnic tables and cooking grills. There is a playground available for children, and seating is provided near the play area for parents.
