Winter New Year’s Eve Fest

We had over 600 people attend our New Year’s Eve Event, and City staff would like to recognize volunteers from the Women of Today and President Wendy Homak, The Park and Recreation Commissioners Tina LaCroix, Dan Moldan and Gary Flandrick, Champlin Ace Hardware volunteers Mary Kay and Tim Andreen, and the many businesses and sponsors that made this event possible.  We believe everyone had a great time and hope to see all involved again next year.

Thank you to all who participated in the event, we hope you enjoyed your New Year’s Eve.

Support Seniors & Youth Programs

The City of Champlin’s Parks and Recreation Department (with assistance from our Finance and Utility Department) are offering a unique way that residents can support youth and senior activities and programming opportunities within our city.

Starting in January 2017, residents will be sent in their Utility billing, a request to enroll in the Champlin Round-Up Program.  With this program, a resident utility customer can decide to round up their utility bill to the next highest dollar value.  The most a customer can provide in one year is $11.88, but accumulated totals from all participants will go to offset costs associated with providing recreational opportunities for both the youth and seniors of our community.

This fund will be used to supplement various youth and senior activities that often do not run because the event or function would normally be too costly to participate in. The Champlin Round-Up Program is an opt-in program, and one in which we hope you will consider becoming an active participant.

If you would like to opt-in to this program before requests are sent with the Utility billing, please send an email request to

Thank you for your supporting the City of Champlin’s Parks and Recreation Department! View complete information here.
