Northeast Park, established in 1941, is a 37-acre community park located in Northeast Minneapolis. The park plays an important role for city-wide athletics and athletic activities in northeast Minneapolis. Northeast Park is one of seven athletic parks in Minneapolis and it provides athletic fields for adult and youth use.
Northeast Park attracts visitors from across the city, region, and state for athletics and aquatics. The park also attracts local neighborhood recreation users for both passive (walking, picnicking, etc.) and active recreation.
Northeast Park is heavily used during the spring, summer and fall by organized adult and youth sports teams, aquatic park visitors, and neighborhood users. Edison High School’s teams use the baseball fields and tennis courts for practice and competition.
