Your town in focus: Lake Park getaway to the lakes
Head about 40 miles east from Moorhead on Highway 10 and you’ll see the Old Skool Malt Shop building, which boasts “great food, malt shop, buy and sell classic cars.”
Most people know this as a sign they are getting close to Detroit Lakes, Minn. But for the 881 people in Lake Park, they call it home.
Lake Park spans an area of about 620 acres in Becker County. The mostly Scandinavian population consists mainly of people younger than 18 and older than 65.
