The Reed City Planning Commission is updating the City’s 5-Year Parks and Recreation Master Plan. The plan serves as a guide to developing and maintaining the City’s public parks and recreation facilities. It is very important that we have as much input from the community as possible. We ask your assistance by completing the survey in the surveymonkey link shown below.
Your reply will help make the City a better place to live, work and play! Thank you for your time and support.

Osceola County was named after Seminole Indian warrior Chief Osceola. The first white settler to the area was Nathan Hersey, a fur trapper, who arrived in 1840 and settled near the town and river that still bears his name.
Reed City was plotted in 1870. Its first school was opened in 1872. By the late 1890s and early 1900s, the village had a population of about 2,690, and it officially became a city in 1933.
Notable residents of Reed City include Thomas Schall, U.S. Senator from Minnesota, and George Bennard, American hymn composer and preacher best known for composing the famous hymn, "The Old Rugged Cross".
