Green Central Park surrounds a community of organizations housed in one building. The park is just over two acres of green space bustling with opportunities for all ages.
The basketball court is a popular hangout and is alive with activity much of the year. In the summer the wading pool provides relief from the heat and an opportunity for the neighborhood to get to know one another. Green Central Gym Park also has a softball field and tennis court.
Central Gym will be closed from June 6-August 15, 2014 for construction and repairs to the gym and school. A number of initiatives are underway to provide outdoor summer activities and programming options. Call 612-499-9310 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
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. (See Central Park section.)
