The Commons and Port of Excelsior
Historic Lake Areas
The Excelsior Commons and Port of Excelsior are historic, dating to the origins of the city, and are widely recognized as Excelsior’s chief assets. The 13-acre park includes open recreation areas, picnic sites, playgrounds, two swimming beaches, tennis courts, baseball fields, a band shell, bathhouse, public restrooms, docks, buoys, and docking for public excursion boats that provide lake access for those who do not own personal boats.
In addition to traditional park uses, such as picnics and family gatherings, the Excelsior Commons and Port of Excelsior serve diverse recreational opportunities for all age groups with the annual Art Fair, Fourth of July celebration, organized sports, and other large events.
