Help Craft The Future of Our Parks along The Mississippi River

riverfront.pngThe Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board and the Minneapolis Parks Foundation, along with the University of Minnesota College of Design and the Walker Art Center are considering the future of our parks along the Mississippi River from the Stone Arch Bridge to the Minneapolis city limits with a new Minneapolis Riverfront Design Competition. They have selected four high-quality design firms to create designs for 220 acres of parkland along a 5.4 mile stretch of the Mississippi River.

This project needs your help. This commission is inviting the public to join in a discussion about what residents consider important in a newly designed, 21st century park. "No one knows the riverfront like those that live and work near every day."

You can find more information about this project as well as the four design teams that will participate in the upcoming discussion here.

The project meeting will be on December 7 at 7:00 p.m. at the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board Headquarters at 2117 West River Road in Minneapolis. We hope to see you there!
