About

Situated at a key location along the Mississippi, Brainerd is the largest city in the Mississippi Headwaters Region, where the river achieves big river status, linking Brainerd to the Gulf of Mexico and all points in between.

The Mississippi River is one of our richest natural resources, but like many river communities, we have not embraced its potential…until now.  Brainerd Riverfront is a multi-phased effort to transform the riverfront by creating recreational, economic and cultural opportunities for our residents and our visitors.
