Projects

This free 18-hole miniature golf course by the Fairmont Aquatic Park was opened in June 2021. It’s original 9-hole course was completed September 2019, but high demand led to its expansion. Golf Clubs and balls may be checked out at The Fairmont Aquatic Park, Martin County Library, Graffiti Corner, Sommer Outdoors or Holiday Inn.

The free indoor playground at the Five Lakes Town Center in Fairmont, MN was opened in February 2018. Our group remains grateful to the many generous donors who assisted us in completing our goal for the indoor playground.
