One of Fargo's nature parks, Orchard Glen Park is a community orchard for everyone to enjoy. The natural setting is a popular backdrop for photographers year-round featuring beautiful blooms in the spring, vegetation in the summer, vibrant colors in the fall and frosty winter scenes. A project of the Urban Woods & Prairie Initiative with Audubon Dakota, Orchard Glen provides plenty of opportunities to see birds and other wildlife in a natural setting along the banks of the Red River.

 

Orchard Glen Park Fruit Harvest

The fruit produced by the orchard is open to members of the public to be harvested. We encourage community members visiting the orchard to bring an apple or fruit picker to harvest the fruit. These guidelines need to be kept in mind while harvesting:

  • Harvest fruit when it is in season.
  • The fruit that is harvested is for personal use only. Businesses, wineries and breweries are prohibited from profiting off the orchard fruit.
  • Do not damage trees while harvesting. Any unnecessary damage to the trees are assessed by the Park Forester on an individual basis. 

There are certain months where the fruit at Orchard Glen is most ripe: 

  • All of July: Cherries
  • All of August: Pears
  • August-September: Plums
  • Late August-October: Apples
