Webber Park Renovation
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) led a master planning process that brought together the community and a professional design team to create a vision for the future of Webber Park. From this vision, a new master plan was developed and approved by the Board.
The cornerstone of these improvements is a new, natural-filtration pond* that will be the first public pool of its kind in the country. The new pool facility will have a natural pool edge with spaces for lap swimming, wading and open swimming. The pond will also be used in the winter for ice skating. Read the Pool & Spa News article about this exciting new facility. The pool has also been featured in USA Today.
This innovative, chemical-free technology was chosen by the community and MPRB for both its long term environmental and health benefits. Natural filtration eliminates the need for chlorine, using instead a type of wetland to provide the filter function. Read more about this new technology and see plans for the new Webber pool.
