Harrison Park is located on Irving Ave. N next to Olson Memorial Highway. A vital part of the community, the seven-acre park is adjacent to the Harrison Education Center and Harrison Neighborhood Association. The park offers a picnic area, fields for baseball, softball, football and soccer in addition to basketball courts. Other amenities at the park include a totlot playground and wading pool.

The Recreation Center provides a gymnasium and a wide variety of programs and activities for kids, teens and the whole family. To make available an even better and broader range of recreational services, Harrison Park is part of a Service Area with Kenwood Park and Elliot Park. Other recreation destinations near Harrison Park include Bethune Park, Sumner Field Park, Theodore Wirth Park and Bassett's Creek Valley Park.

Like the surrounding neighborhood, Harrison Park was named after the old William Henry Harrison School which once occupied the park site. The first playground and recreation center were installed at the old school in 1960. After the new school and neighborhood center were built in the 1990s, the playground was updated and other improvements were made to 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’ renown recreational system.
