Announcements & News

August 25, 9 am-Noon

As many events have been canceled, the City of Prior Lake decided to adapt the traditional Night to Unite into a Day to Unite event. It is important to honor the tradition of celebrating and strengthening partnerships with the community and public safety agencies in the area.

This modified version, Day to Unite Scavenger Hunt, will take place Tuesday, August 25th from 9 am – noon. See the clues below for our 8 locations where you will find staff from Police, Fire, Public Works and Recreation Departments. Download the tracking sheet HERE or pick up a sheet at any of the locations to track your journey, if you collect all 8 stickers, you can enter our drawing for a Local Restaurant gift card pack valued at $200+

We will be collecting items for Southern Valley Alliance at all locations, click here for a list of high priority donation needs.

ocation Clues:

·     Men and women dressed in gear, here to help in times of fear. After the flames slowed, their trucks return to Fish Point Road.

·     Lights, sirens and flairs, oh my! Wilds they call it, stop on by.

·     When the snowstorm hits, may we mention, this building is the center of attention. Our equipment will really plow you over, come look closer!

·     Orders called out by the Chief to the crew, come meet them at FS2.

·     Go to Itasca where your water is treated, then sent to your homes where sometimes its heated.

·     Roses are red, squads are blue, can you figure out this next clue? Drive a smidge on Stemmer Ridge, but donut forget to take a break at Howard Lake.

·     A Park named after a fruit, so sweet, can be found on Lords Street.

·     This park soars above the rest, so zip on over and see what’s happening. You’ll get an eagle eye view from the top of the climbing wall.

If you have any questions, please call 952-447-9855.
