Park Development Continues
Sheridan Memorial Park, located in Northeast Minneapolis, is the first named park owned by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) in Sheridan since the neighborhood’s inception.
A plan for the park was finished in 2007; future park amenities include a memorial reflecting pool and flagpole honoring all U.S. veterans, a peace garden, a picnic area and river overlooks. Development of Sheridan Memorial Park is ongoing and will occur as funds become available.
Designs for the park are the result of a year-long planning process between the MPRB, Sheridan Neighborhood Organization, Mississippi Watershed Management Organization, elected officials, the Above the Falls Citizens Advisory Committee, neighborhood residents and veterans. Sheridan Memorial Park is identified in the City of Minneapolis and MPRB Above the Falls Master Plan, which guides development along the banks of the Mississippi River north of St. Anthony Falls.
