The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is embarking on an ambitious and critical effort to master plan every neighborhood park in each service area—and all the outdoor park assets that lie within them. These master plans will guide system-wide capital improvements, management, programming and operations for each geographic service area.
Every construction or redevelopment project undertaken within the MPRB Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is required to have a community engagement plan. That’s where you come in!
Join neighbors and friends, Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board staff and professional designers during Design Week Nov. 13-16! Everyone who lives, works or plays in Southwest Minneapolis is invited to two opportunities to help set the vision for neighborhood parks in the area.
