Living in Waite Park

Waite Park is a neighborly town; block parties and cookouts on summer weekends are typical, and the National Night Out is celebrated in a big way here in the town, second just to the Fun Festival. Most people spend time at the fabulous parks in town, which offer hiking, swimming, mountain biking, rock climbing and fishing. In the winter, you will find lots of people snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.

Employment and Income

Common occupations in Waite Park include careers in driving, electrical equipment and vehicle mechanics, metal and plastic work, maintenance and grounds work, material moving and other sales and related work. Local businesses include Waite Park, the colleges in town, schools, banks and other retail locations. Many people also commute to nearby St. Cloud for work, and a larger percentage work from home than the nationwide norm. (Might be that cold weather keeping them from wanting to go outside!)

Climate

Minnesota usually has two seasons: winter and construction season (also known as any time it's warm and dry enough to do construction). As mentioned, Waite Park has long, often very cold winters. The coldest temperature averages about 13 degrees in January, and dips down into the sub-zero category are not uncommon at all. Though it does not snow a lot in the area in comparison to some other places, the snow usually does not melt until springtime. July is the warmest month of the year, with average temperatures around 72 degrees; there are extremes in summer as well, with temperatures as low as 25 and as high as 101 being recorded. August is the wettest month of the year, with over four inches of rain on average.

Recreation

The locals love their parks, and with good reason. Quarry Park is 684 acres large and offers a variety of different activities for people of all ages all year round. The swimming hole is a short and easy walk along winding trails with lots of that Minnesota wildlife. The Healthy Living Trail runs through town and offers exercise stations and tips about healthy lifestyles; the beautiful perennial gardens make it a pleasant trail. River's Edge Park is handicapped accessible and has baseball fields and a Splash Pad alongside the Sauk River. Community Park has an all-season pavilion, grills and a playground. Basically, there is never a shortage of natural environments to find some fun in (makes sense, given the whole focus on fun in this town. When you start your search for apartments, you might want to be aware of the proximity of your favorite recreational spot for convenience of use.

Overall, there isn't much about Waite Park that isn't idyllic and ideal for your next home. Whether you prefer the greenery that comes with living in a small Minnesota town or the convenience of being close to two incredible cities of commerce, sports teams, and fun, there's sure to be a place for you in the lovely area of Waite Park
