Construction nears completion; eastern half of park opens Friday, May 3

Construction crews continue to put finishing touches on Peavey Park. Recent work includes:

Welcome back!: The eastern half of Peavey Park will open by mid-day Friday, May 3. This includes the new playground and Pavilion, along with new trails, grading and lighting. The basketball courts remain open.

New swings: Over the next few weeks, a new set of swings will be added to the playground thanks to another generous contribution from Ventura Village Neighborhood Association.

Turf establishment: The new multi-use field and some other park areas will remain closed until fall to ensure that turf grass is well established. Please do not enter any fenced areas where grass is growing.

Grand opening celebration: Save the date for a neighborhood celebration on May 31, 2 to 4 pm – details coming soon.

Thank you for your patience while we work to improve Minneapolis parks.
