A few blocks from Dinkytown in the Marcy-Holmes neighborhood sits Marcy Park, located at the intersection of 11th Ave. SE and 7th St. SE. The park’s idyllic landscaping features grass covered earthen mounds surrounded by evergreen trees.

Amenities at Marcy Park include a totlot playground and a picnic area. For more active pursuits, check out nearby Van Cleve Park, which features sports courts and fields, and a Recreation Center offering youth programs and other activities.

Acquired in 1979, Marcy Park was the site of Marcy Open School, now located a few blocks west, adjacent to Holmes Park. The park’s name was derived from the school, which was named after 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’ renown recreational system.
