To best serve park patrons, the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board has divided the city into six different geographical service areas.
Each service area applies park and recreation 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."
