Located in the center of a supportive community, Longfellow Park and Recreation Center are always full of people and smiles. In the warm months enjoy a round of tennis or a brief walk along the paths. If you bring along a picnic you will be ideally situated to watch kids playing on the playground, on one of the two half-courts or on the football field. On the really hot days the wading pool is very inviting and a great place to meet neighbors as you cool off.

It is inevitable that winter will come after the trees have turned colors and the football season comes to an end. But it just means a new season of enjoyment at Longfellow! Each year there is an ice rink and a hockey rink where everyone is invited to come try out their dreams of being a world champion on the ice. Just remember that practice makes perfect!

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.
