Lake Nokomis Concessions (Sandcastle) Site Improvements

 

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is making improvements to the patio and covered seating area adjacent to Sandcastle at the Lake Nokomis main beach. The new Sandcastle terrace will include seating covered by a metal trellis. Pedestrian paths in the area will be reconstructed to allow easy movement around the restaurant serving area.

Background

Current Activity

The terrace is now open and Sandcastle is serving fresh, local food and beer and wine lakeside. Construction began in May and was expected to be completed by late June. Early weather delays have pushed the final completion date to late July.

Community Engagement

Using input from a community survey and open house, an appointed Community Advisory Committee (CAC) recommended Sandcastle as the new vendor for the site in late 2012. Learn more about the vendor selection process.
