Located one block south of Lake Street, Bryant Square Park and recreation center are a full block of fun just waiting for you and your family.

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!

In 2008 a small amphitheatre, the Bryant Square Park POPS (Public Outdoor Performance Space), was built into the hillside south of the park’s recreation center. It features a 20 foot circular plaza 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 the recreation center.

Bryant Park was commonly referred to as 8th Ward Park until it was officially named for its location on Bryant Avenue in 1907. Bryant Avenue was presumably named for American poet and journalist William Cullen Bryant.

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’ renowned recreational system.
