Bryant Square Park and recreation center are a full block of fun just waiting for you and your family. Located on Bryant Ave. S, one block south of Lake St., the park is home to several ball fields, including two softball diamonds, a basketball half-court and a soccer field.
Come to the park in the summer to cool off in the wading pool. Warm up in the winter with a hockey game or ice skating on a rink established in 1913; talk about great traditions!
The park features the POPS (Public Outdoor Performance Space) that opened in the summer of 2008. The POPS is a small amphitheatre located in a natural hillside south of the recreation center. It features a circular plaza 20 feet in diameter with two rows of retaining wall seating.
The POPS is the site of the park's own summer concert series. Other potential uses include comedy, karaoke and movie nights, theater camp, dances and ice cream socials. The POPS is available for private rental by calling 612-370-4907 Monday-Thursday noon-9 p.m. and Friday, noon-5 p.m.
The project was initiated and fully funded by the Calhoun Area Resident Action Group (CARAG). Throughout the design phase, the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board (MPRB) worked with CARAG to ensure the project met community needs.
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.
