Farview 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. In the winter bring your sled for the ride down the hills. In the summer take a seat on the bench perfectly situated to enjoy the view or have a picnic.
The 21-acre park contains a recreation center, athletic fields for baseball, softball and football. The gym is named the Gary Wilson Gym in honor of the longtime Northside coach.
