Powderhorn Park wading pool will be closed for the season due to construction activities around Powderhorn Lake and the recreation center building.

Powderhorn is the largest park in the neighborhood covering 68 acres of land including 12 acres of water, and features a recreation center and several athletic fields.

The park boundaries continue along 10th-15th Avenues and from halfway into the 3100 block to 35th St.

Powderhorn Park is host to several important events each year, including the annual 4th of July Celebration, May Day Festival and the Powderhorn Arts Festival. Its setting and size can easily accommodate large events.

The park was named under the order of Major Plympton (based at Fort Snelling) and so-named because the contour of the lake in its original form and size resembled a powder horn. A powder horn is a flask made from the horn of a cow or ox that held gunpowder carried by soldiers.

Historical Profile: More information about this and other parks is included in Parks, Lakes, Trails and So Much More, a richly detailed account of the histories of Minneapolis’ renown recreational system.
