Lakeville’s Antlers Park opened on the Fourth of July 1910 at Lake Marion. The Park offered amusements, bathing, boating, and a dance pavilion.

The “Dan Patch” gas electric rail line (named for a famous local race horse) scheduled twelve runs a day to and from Minneapolis and Saint Paul to handle the number of passengers drawn to the park.

The property became a city park in 1974.
