Hackensack is a city in Cass County, Minnesota, United States. The population was 313 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Brainerd Micropolitan Statistical Area. Although the population is small, it is located within a ten-mile radius of 127 lakes, so during the warm months there is plenty of business. The city center is home to gift stores, the Big Dipper ice cream shop and restaurant, Udom's thai restaurant, Lucette's Pizza and Pub, and much more. Perhaps most famously, just off of the main street is a seventeen foot tall statue of Paul Bunyan's sweetheart, Lucette Diana Kensack. She can be viewed at the intersections of Lake Avenue and Fleisher Avenue, inside of Birch Lake Park.
