A busy little city, Owatonna, Minnesota is the county seat of Steele County and the center of business in southern Minnesota. It is home to over 25,500 residents, and home to major business across diverse industries, including ones like Viracon, Federated Insurance, Bosch, Jostens, and many more. This has helped to make it a place that is growing, both in terms of the community as well as the economy.
Owatonna locals do more than just work, of course. They love to play outdoors, including at Kaplan’s Woods, with hiking and cross country skiing trails, surfaced trails, and the 35-acre Lake Kohlmier. During the summer, Riversprings Water Park opens up to the community and includes swim classes, water slides, water aerobics, and more. At West Hills, the home of the Owatonna State School for academic and vocational training, the old grounds have been reborn as a senior activity, the Owatonna Arts Center, Big brothers/Big Sisters, and is generally a hub for the city programs.
