Current Phase: System Planning
This work group is one of four dedicated to particular Northside parks and related topics. These groups are part of the planning process for the North Service Area Master Plan (NSAMP), which covers all neighborhood parks in Minneapolis north of I-394 and west of the Mississippi River.
We want to hear your thoughts on the initial design concepts. View them under Key Documents and then take the survey.
Northside community members have contributed an amazing range of ideas and input on local neighborhood parks over the past eight months. Staff from the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) have been using this information and working with a design team to develop initial concepts for every Minneapolis neighborhood park north of I-394 and west of the Mississippi River [PDF]. This process is a key part of creating an overall long-term plan known as the North Service Area Master Plan (NSAMP).
The North Service Area Master Plan (NSAMP) will have extensive community engagement, and lots of different ways to participate. Throughout 2017, we expect to be in the parks, at community events, attending community meetings, and trying to talk with as many people as we can.
For now, there are three ways to get involved:

A Service Area Master Plan is a process that engages the community to:
The North Service Area Master Plan (NSAMP) will include all neighborhood parks north of I-394 and west of the Mississippi River. It does not include Regional Parks (Theodore Wirth, Victory Parkway, North Mississippi, and Above the Falls/RiverFirst) because these parks are required by the Metropolitan Council to have their own master plans.
The project WILL include the Shingle Creek Regional Trail corridor and the Wirth Parkway corridor between Golden Valley Road and Lowry Avenue. These regional facilities do not have current master plans, so we will plan them along with the north side neighborhood parks. In all, 34 park properties are included in the NSAMP project.
