Everyone can find something to enjoy at Whittier Park and Recreation Center. Located on Grand Ave. S between 25th and 26th Streets, the park is attached to the elementary school. Visitors can watch or participate in an informal soccer game or a pickup basketball game on the two half-courts. Children enjoy the two playgrounds that feature a variety of slides, stairs, tunnels and shapes. Family and friends of all ages can splash around in the wading pool on a hot summer day.

Whittier Park spans four acres and is located in the heart of the Whittier neighborhood. Bounded by Lyndale Ave., Franklin Ave., 35W and Lake St., the neighborhood was named in honor of the poet John Greenleaf Whittier.

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.
