Donie Galloway Riverside Park is tucked away in the northwest corner of Champlin and Dayton. The park, located at 1333 Dayton Road, offers:

  • Soccer/lacrosse fields
  • an open play area
  • walking trails
  • and a tree nursery

Although the park has no playground equipment, it provides lots of space to play soccer or lacrosse (Champlin Park High School’s lacrosse team practices and hosts games there regularly), and there is a trail that follows along the banks of the Mississippi River.

Originally, it was called North River Park; however, in March 1993, the City of Champlin renamed North River Park as Donie Galloway Riverside Park in honor of former Police Chief Donie Galloway. A bronze plaque was erected under the park sign at the park commending his accomplishments with the Champlin Police Department.
