Nestled between the West Bank of the Mississippi River and Interstates 94E and 35W lies Currie Park, a small but noteworthy neighborhood retreat.
Serving the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, Currie Park is an important destination as it is the only park in the immediate area off of Cedar Ave. Both the park and Coyle Community Center provide recreational opportunities and vital programs to a dynamic multi-cultural community.
Along with your visit to the park, take a stroll to Alkarama Mall on Cedar Ave. (less than one block away) for a unique and exotic experience where cultures combine creating a bazaar of ethnic merchandise from around the globe. Bring along your appetite as your senses will undeniably develop cravings for African, Asian, Mexican and other fine global cuisines.
Cedar-Riverside was one of Minneapolis’ first neighborhoods settled in the 1850’s. Many of the first residents were Scandinavian immigrants who found work at the nearby mills. The Cedar-Riverside neighborhood has traditionally been a gateway community composed mainly of recent immigrants. Today it is largely populated by East Africans, mainly Somalians. This immigrant tradition has made Cedar-Riverside one of the most unique and diverse neighborhoods in the Minneapolis metropolitan area.
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.
