About the 26th Avenue North Overlook

This project, also called the Great Northern Greenway River Link, is a major step in transforming the river corridor through North Minneapolis into public parkland, parkway, and trails. The overlook is located at the east end of the recently completed 26th Ave North Greenway, which connects the Grand Rounds at Theodore Wirth Regional Park with the Mississippi River through the heart of North Minneapolis neighborhoods. 

The 26th Avenue North Overlook will celebrate the Greenway’s link to the river with a small but compelling public space that is now an unsightly, inaccessible dead-end street, where dense vegetation and a chain link fence blocks the river. With a budget of $1 million, the project scope includes shoreline rehabilitation and a river overlook with inventive approaches to lighting, furniture, and art. A broader vision for the area includes connections to downtown and the West River trails, and new parks stretching north and south along the riverfront.
