Thanks to a dramatic increase in funding, the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is expanding its rehabilitation program to address much-needed repairs in neighborhood parks throughout the city. The new, six-year rehabilitation program budget of $25 million is six times the previous budget, which allocated about $3.97 million over six years. On January 25, Park Board Commissioners were presented with information about the expanded program, including a criteria-based system for identifying and prioritizing projects.
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is closing all outdoor skating rinks due to warmer temps. (This excludes the refrigerated Wells Fargo WinterSkate rink Loring Park.) Designated broomball rinks will also remain open.
Skating on ice during warmer temperatures can cause damage to the ice and injure skaters. Closing the rinks (including not watering or sweeping the ice) will help prolong the ice for when the temps cool off.
The rinks will reopen as soon as possible after more seasonable weather returns and rinks can be prepared for safe use. Please check the ice rink status page for the most up-to-date opening and closing information.
Public comments will be accepted until March 4 via online survey, paper survey or direct email or phone call to the project manager
45-day public comment period open until March 4
