You Can Redesign Our Parks

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) has spent the last year meeting with North Minneapolis neighbors learning how our parks are used and what improvements are most desired at each neighborhood park. The information gathered from these conversations was provided to local and national designers who have now developed initial design concepts for every park in North Minneapolis. The concepts will inform future, outdoor improvements to the parks.

Victory Park (adjacent to Loring Community School) is slated for $750,000 in capital improvements in 2023. Victory neighbors are encouraged to share their feedback and ideas with ViNA and MPRB on the park’s initial redesign concept and all of the parks designs in the coming weeks. Some initial design highlights for Victory’s parks include a boardwalk at Ryan Lake Park, and an adventure course and outdoor classroom at Victory Park.

Your feedback will inform what our neighborhood parks look like in the future. To share your ideas, attend one or more of the following community input sessions:

Monday, February 26, 6pm to 8pm
Creekview Recreation Center, 5001 Humboldt Avenue North

Wednesday, February 28, 6pm to 8pm 
North Commons Recreation Center, 1801 James Avenue North

Tuesday, March 6, 6pm to 8pm 
Folwell Recreation Center, 1615 North Dowling Avenue

Thursday, March 8, 6pm to 8pm
Harrison Recreation Center, 503 North Irving Avenue

Each session will have children’s activities and refreshments.
