Fall Colors - The Best Spots in Fargo-Moorhead!
You don’t have to travel far to enjoy the magical fall foliage. The Fargo-Moorhead metro area has many great locations and public spaces to enjoy all the beautiful fall colors. We put together a list of our favorite spots that we thought you might enjoy too!
Forest River Park
If you only have time to visit one location on this list, make it the Forest River Park. This heavily wooded park is a short drive south of Fargo and features beautiful trails, scenic views of the Red River, and a kayak/canoe launch. You can truly get lost in nature and did we mention the beautiful trails? Forest River Park is also known to be a great spot for birdwatching.
Lindenwood is a large, popular park with many multi-use paths and two playgrounds including a fully adaptive playground for people of all abilities. The park sits along the Red River, and it has a pedestrian bridge connected to Moorhead's Gooseberry Park.

The Hjemkomst Center
From this location, you can access a large trail system leading to many of Moorhead and Fargo’s downtown parks including Moorhead’s Woodlawn Park with the Midtown Dam Floating Bridge (pictured) for beautiful views of the Red River. The Hjemkomst Center features a replica of a Norwegian Viking ship, a wooden stave church, and various other displays that preserve and share the history of Clay County, Minnesota.

North Fargo Neighborhoods
These neighborhoods are desirable for their tree-lined streets; not found in Fargo-Moorhead’s sprawling developments. The mature trees reach across the road creating a beautiful canopy high above the pavement. Take a drive through one of these neighborhoods and you’ll not only admire the beautiful trees but also the stunning and unique architecture. In fact, we have a few homes listed for sale in these neighborhoods right now…check them out by clicking here.
