As work for the season wraps up, replacements have been completed for critically damaged sidewalk sections around the perimeters of the neighborhood park locations listed below.
In addition, inventory and condition ratings are complete for all neighborhood park sidewalks, paths and parking lots. This allows development of concrete sidewalk replacement plans for 2018 to cover 50 to 60 neighborhood parks, including perimeter and interior sidewalks and other concrete paved areas. Park locations and other details will follow in 2018.
North Minneapolis: Bethune Park, Folwell Park, Willard Park
Northeast/southeast Minneapolis: Logan Park, Waite Park
South Minneapolis: East Phillips Park

Announced: June 16, 2017
Time frame: August through October, 2017
This project includes replacement of critically damaged sections of sidewalks around the perimeter of a park property and, if possible, minor repairs to interior sidewalks. The park properties below are among those identified as having a critical need for repairs and replacement, based on on-site inspections. Along with the city, MPRB will coordinate replacement of accessible pedestrian ramps along streets as a separate project.
