Folwell Park Improvements project update

At the August 7 meeting of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB), commissioners approved the purchase of new playground equipment at Folwell Park. This portion of the improvements project will move ahead as planned, with construction beginning this fall and the new playground expected to open in spring 2020, depending on weather and construction delays.

Meanwhile, other elements of Folwell Park’s improvements project have been delayed due to contractual issues. These include improvements to the athletic field and tennis courts, as well as a park path.

Due to the delay, project staff will review the scope of these improvements and re-bid the project. Construction on these improvements is planned for spring 2020.

Thanks for your patience while we work to improve Minneapolis parks.
