The City of Park Rapids and Park Rapids Arts and Culture Commission sponsor the Park Rapids Sculpture Trail in Red Bridge Park and Downtown Park Rapids. In 2015, the Tube Dude, by Scott Gerber was installed in Red Bridge Park and inspired the idea of adding more sculptures. The Arts and Culture Advisory Commission took on the project in 2018 adding six sculptures in the park. In 2019, solar lighting was added to highlight each sculpture and the Sculpture Trail expanded with the addition of two artworks Downtown. In 2021, five new sculptures were added in the park and eight were installed Downtown. The sculptures are selected from among artists in an annual spring competition. They are displayed for one year, available for sale and may be removed when the changeover occurs in May. Red Bridge Park is located at 175-199 Beach Road (east of US Hwy. 71/Park Avenue North, about a block north of the stoplights at the junction of Hwy. 71 and state Hwy. 34).
