Holmes Park is located three blocks north of Historic Main St. in the heart of one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, Marcy-Holmes. Other nearby parks of historic significance include Chute Square and Father Hennepin Bluffs Park.

Youth programs and other activities are offered at nearby Van Cleve Recreation Center.

Whether it’s community events, school functions or a picnic, the open green space, picnic tables and pergola seating area make Holmes Park a great neighborhood gathering place.

Holmes Park is named after the old Holmes School that once occupied the site of the current Marcy Open School. A previous Marcy School site is also a park, Marcy Park. The schools and the neighborhood were named after the poet Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., and the 19th century American statesman William L. Marcy.

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’ renowned recreational system.
