Information sessions and community engagement opportunities coming this summer!Posted on 29 May, 2018
Planning is underway for a first phase of improvements at Currie Park, guided by the Currie Park Master Plan, that was approved in 2016 by commissioners for the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB). This phase includes a new splash pad and improvements to the park’s restroom building and playground.
Community engagement is essential to help ensure that these improvements reflect the needs and desires of the communities who use the park.
We hope you can attend an community engagement event to learn about the project and share your thoughts and ideas. Please help to spread the word to friends, family, neighbors and coworkers, too!
Visit the Get Involved page for more information about the upcoming May – July information sessions and community engagement events.
