Recreation Service Areas
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board has divided the city into different geographical areas for recreation services.
Each area applies resources to best meet the programming and service needs of the community it serves. This concept has grown out of the 2007-2020 Comprehensive Plan direction to "deliver recreation that inspires personal growth, healthy lifestyles and a sense of community."
