Mayor's Office

Welcome To Watertown

We're glad you have come to Watertown, get ready for a great time!

It doesn't matter what you like, you are sure to find it here in Watertown. Spend an afternoon at our wonderful Bramble Park Zoo and its many displays, including a couple of brand new ones. Take a tour of the Redlin Art Center and see the work of one of America's top artists. Check out Mellette House, home of South Dakota's first governor. Make a splash on one of our beautiful lakes, Kampeska or Pelican.

You can also take a stroll through beautiful Uptown Watertown and see the sculptures on our brand-new Artwalk, shop in some of our unique shops, have a great meal in one of our fine locally owned eateries or get a dose of history at the Codington County Heritage Museum.

And here in "South Dakota's Rising Star," we're always looking to the future. The quality of life continues to grow with our new Prairie Lakes Wellness Center, five field softball complex, and new modern middle school and, coming soon, another indoor ice sheet for skating and hockey.

Enjoy your stay!
