The 7th Annual Kingfield Neighborhood Garden Tour, Thursday July 9th, 2015, at 6pm, is a self-guided evening of butterfly and bee-friendly garden exploration. Walk, bike, or drive, in the rain or sunshine. This year’s focus is on native plants, and helping to support all of our friendly pollinators. Gardeners will be on hand for questions and yard tours.

Meet at the field, end at The Lowbrow. All adults welcome. Bring a glove if you have one. Teams and team names are selected anew each week. Team photos posted weekly along with the blow-by-blow at “Kingfield Softball”, a public Facebook group you are welcome to join.

Multiple projects underway to shape award-winning park system for next 20 years – and beyond
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is undergoing what may be the most comprehensive planning effort in its 130 year history. Minneapolis residents are encouraged to get involved and help the MPRB with three distinct, yet deeply intertwined projects: Closing the Gap- Investing in our Neighborhood Parks, RecQuest, and Service Area Master Plans. Residents can get involved by attending a public meeting or subscribing to receive timely emails about the projects.
