The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is excited to announce the next steps in a new project that will enhance the Lake Nokomis shoreline as part of a long-term effort to increase the amount of natural landscape within the park and reduce impacts from invasive vegetation.

The first public meeting was held Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017 at Nokomis Community Center. At that meeting, interested community members reviewed current site conditions and gave feedback on potential changes along Lake Nokomis’s northern and eastern shoreline.
The next public meeting for the project is scheduled Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2018, 7-9 pm at Pearl Recreation Center. This meeting will provide a recap on site analysis and potential stabilization measures and discuss options and opportunities for how shoreline improvements may eventually look.

The Nokomis-Hiawatha Master Plan [PDF] is a written and graphic document that sets a 25-year vision for Lake Hiawatha, Lake Nokomis, and the surrounding parkland. It was approved by MPRB Commissioners in March 2015 and amended in July 2017 to include a designated Urban Agriculture Area and a design concept for Nokomis Athletic Fields.
The Master Plan outlines a vision for improving the quality of natural settings in the park, which includes direction to enhance the Lake Nokomis shoreline. In 2016, the MPRB was awarded a Minnesota Legacy Outdoor Heritage Fund grant to fund this project.
