The 21-acre park in North Minneapolis is known for its beautiful panoramic hilltop view of the city. Climb up the hill to see majestic old trees frame a stunning view of the downtown Minneapolis skyline.
Farview Recreation Center offers youth programs and other activities. The gym is named the Gary Wilson Gym in honor of the longtime Northside coach.
The park's name was chosen because one could see “far” from the hill in the center of the park.
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.
