Welcome to City of Dawson - This institution is an equal opportunity provider and employer. City of Dawson...the small city with the bright future!
The City of Dawson is a progressive community located on the prairies of west central Minnesota maintaining a quality of life surpassed by none. The city excels with excellent school and health care systems, promotion of new industry and the support of existing businesses.
This community is blessed with many active and caring people which have supported the parks, golf course, and the new aquatic center providing recreation to both young and old alike. The Dawson/Boyd Arts Center satisfies our appetite for the arts and theater.
Walking Trail The Lac qui Parle River flows through the community providing an environment of quiet and stress free living. Dawson’s walking trail is located adjacent to the river encompassed by trees, flowers, and native vegetation providing a sanctuary for everything and everyone.
Beautifully renovated homes, well kept lawns and gardens are a common sight in Dawson. From the renovation of older homes, the building of new homes, apartments and townhouses, Dawson offers a variety of fine living.

Water Restrictions Implemented
Please limit your water use being mindful of the current drought conditions. We respectfully ask that irrigation/sprinkler systems be turned to every other day or even off. Watering flowers and trees is still ok and spot watering grass could continue at this point. As we continue to monitor the drought and receive information from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resouces, these restrictions could increase. Thank you for doing your part.
