The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board [MPRB] is working to understand the best aspects of options 1A and 4 and develop a revised design that can be embraced by the community. To help us better understand the community perspectives on the two options, individuals are being asked to complete a survey by March 26, 2014 at 11:59 pm.

The survey is designed to gather information related to critical design objectives of the play equipment, including how well it will hold the interest of users, it integrates the Civil Rights Movement, Dr. King and African American History theme into the design, and it meets the community’s playground needs.

The survey is available online ( and at the park building.

Images of the playground designs they are looking at are below.

The Judson Music Series presents the MINNEAPOLIS TROMBONE CHOIR. The acclaimed Minneapolis Trombone Choir brings its big sound to Judson Church’s magnificent sanctuary. More than 30 trombones plus tubas and euphoniums play the sweetest sounds of classical, big band, jazz and pop music in one of the Twin Cities’ best acoustical environments. Don’t miss the finale as the trombone choir and the audience march around the sanctuary to a rousing rendition of 76 Trombones!

The Mpls Park and Rec Board has CLOSED the survey for the new playground. Jennifer Ringold reports that there is a “strong” showing for option 1A and 4. You can view all options on Facebook here:

There will be another meeting to discuss possibly integrating ideas of both options; the intent is to create a place where neighbors can give input/ feedback.

KFNA is curious what the best way to connect withfamilies is on this matter. Family involvement from those of us who want to use MLK park is critical now and has dwindled since the first survey on playground design was distributed last summer. Please share your ideas on better ways to connect with you and your children. You can email me directly at
