Nestled in a suburb of Minneapolis, Corcoran Community Park is one of the premier sports complexes in the area. Primarily a baseball facility, the park maintains six baseball diamonds, along with a few tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, two ice rinks, a multipurpose field, and a picnic shelter. There’s no doubt that you and your team will enjoy playing at this impressive complex. However, Corcoran Community Park should not be the highlight of your trip. The town of Corcoran has some exciting things to do. Because it’s on the outskirts of larger towns like Maple Grove and Brooklyn Park, and the city of Minneapolis, you can quickly travel to these hotspots as well and expand your entertainment and dining options.


Things to Do

The Shoppes at Arbor Lakes

Most malls are enclosed with every store under one roof. The Shoppes at Arbor Lakes do things a little bit differently. All of its 60 or so stores are spread out across the grounds. That way, shoppers can bask in the sunshine as they traverse the mall and go from store to store. Check out the name brand clothing stores and add some new looks to your wardrobe. Grab a bite at one of the many eateries and refuel to get some needed energy to continue shopping.

What makes The Shoppes so great is the beauty of the outdoor areas. The mall has arranged it to be very shopper friendly. Benches and tables can be found all over for when you need to take a second to rest your feet. The assortment of stores will pique every teammate’s interest and they are going to want to spend a good chunk of time shopping and walking around. 12459 Elm Creek Blvd N, Maple Grove, MN 55369

Whirlyball Twin Cities

Ever heard of a game by the name of Whirlyball? It’s safe to assume, probably not. Whirlyball is a unique activity that combines aspects of basketball, hockey, lacrosse, and bumper cars. Yes, you read that correctly, bumper cars. You and your team can experience this peculiar game for yourselves at Whirlyball Twin Cities. This place isn’t far from Corcoran Community Park. Don’t miss out on playing this one-of-a-kind activity with your team.

The courts are 80×50 feet and can hold up to 10 players at once. Two teams of five will drive their bumper cars around the court with one hand and with the other will be trying to scoop, pass, and score a whiffle ball by hitting the backboard. When you score, an electronic sensor will register the points, so there’s no need for you to have to keep track of it in your head. Whirlyball Twin Cities is in high demand. It would be smart to reserve a court in advance before you visit. 13644 80th Cir N, Maple Grove, MN 55369


Fish Lake Regional Park

Whether in the midst of a snowy winter or sunny spring, you and your team can appreciate the beauty of Fish Lake Regional Park. During the warmer months, one of the most fun activities is renting a paddleboard, paddleboat, or canoe and float around the lake. There’s also a small beach area where you can swim and lounge around. If you’d rather keep your fun on land, Fish Lake has a paved walking trail that winds its way through most of the park. This trail is especially lovely in the fall when the foliage is at its peak. In the winter, the park provides hikers with a couple turf trails for snowshoeing. Picnic areas and a pavilion can be rented as well and are the perfect places to eat a meal while enjoying nature. 14900 Bass Lake Rd, Maple Grove, MN 55311


Central Park Ice Skating Loop

Most ice rinks are indoors. Most ice rinks are also rectangular. Central Park Ice Skating Loop is neither of these things. This uniquely shaped rink is free when you bring your own skates. If not, rentals are available for cheap. The loop is 810 feet long by 20 feet wide. Both sides have a railing to aid beginners and help them keep their balance. The Loop is a cool activity that your team will really like doing. 12000 Central Park Way, Maple Grove, MN 55369
