Hours

 

Located on Farwell Place between Sheridan Ave. N and Thomas Ave. N, the 1.15-acre Farwell Park is in the Willard-Hay neighborhood, just a few blocks east from Bassett’s Creek and the Wirth Golf Club.

Farwell Park’s open play field is a popular attraction for kids, and the picnic tables and bulletin board announcing community events make the park a neighborhood gathering place.

Nearby parks include Williard Park, Lovell Square Park and North Commons Park.

The North Commons Recreation Center offers youth programs and other activities.

Acquired in 1910, Farwell Park’s development is unique in that it was landscaped by a private company; most parks dating from that era were designed by Theodore Wirth. Initially the park was more of a green space than a playground; the first playground equipment was installed in 1968.

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.
