Join us at Design Week November 13-16!

Join neighbors and friends, Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board staff and professional designers during Design Week Nov. 13-16! Everyone who lives, works or plays in Southwest Minneapolis is invited to two opportunities to help set the vision for neighborhood parks in the area.

During the week, project designers will set up a working design studio at MPRB Headquarters and use all online and in-person feedback collected so far — along with input from people who come to the Design Week events — to create the first drafts of park master plans for all neighborhood park properties in Southwest Minneapolis.

Open Studio

Date: Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018
Time: 6-8 pm
Location: MPRB Headquarters, Cedar Room
Address: 2117 West River Road
Topic: The design team will open the drawing studio so anyone can review draft design ideas and offer additional input during the design process. Light refreshments will be available and children are welcome.
