Amid the lively Downtown Minneapolis atmosphere is a beautiful urban oasis known as Elliot Park. Located between Hennepin County Medical Center and North Central University, Elliot Park has become a mecca for everyone from college students to business professionals looking for a bit of leisurely bliss.
You’ll find visitors enjoying their lunch break with co-workers at one of the many picnic tables, while others come to people-watch, read or relax on the grassy knolls. Bring the kids for fun times in the wading pool and playground. Elliot Park also features a skateboard park.
Feel free to sign-up for a number of recreational activities offered through the recreation center, including flag football, softball, tennis and basketball.
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.
