About Commissioner Vreeland


I am honored to be a part of this great park system. In 1896 Park Commissioners led the procession of hundreds of school children moving the historic Stevens House to Minnehaha Park. They held a banner that said," Let's Make Our Whole City a Work of Art." I would like to continue that effort and work towards the realization of the Mission of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board.


I have been a teacher of kindergarten kids and college students, an actor, a community organizer and neighborhood leader. Joined the In the Heart of The Beast- Circle of Water Circus- for tours down the Mississippi River and to Sweden and Denmark.


Played a dog in a locally produced film called "Heroes. Old enough to have planted seeds of now towering trees. Won first prize at my high school district science fair for research on whether hamsters are colorblind. Past President of the Seward and Cedar Riverside neighborhood organizations.

Special Interest

Taking my solar/battery powered canoe on the Mississippi River and promoting alternative transportation, stormwater water quality education, local history and native plant restoration.

Career Highlights

I was a construction foreman and lead carpenter and have built the holiday and flower show exhibits at what is now Macy's 8th Floor Auditorium.


Graduated from the University of New York at Plattsburg with degrees in Theater and Education. Three years of graduate work in Anthropology and Higher Education at the University of Minnesota.


Married with two grown children, very proud grandfather and baby-sitter.
