Legacy LogoBertram Chain of Lakes

Wright County and the City of Monticello have partnered to create this 1,200 acres of open space in Wright County, known as the Bertram Chain of Lakes.  The County and City partnership was formed with the goal of improving the community’s quality of life by preserving this irreplaceable natural area and creating a regional park for public enjoyment and recreation.   The 1,200 acres of the Bertram Chain of Lakes property represents four lakes, acres of undisturbed shoreline, natural habitat, and oak forest.  


A Bright Future

The partnership was awarded a series of grants from the Parks and Trails Legacy Fund for the acquisition and development of this significant resource.
