New playground is scheduled to open by Friday, October 25

As you know, the playground has been fenced off for construction for the past few weeks. We’re happy to announce that the new playground will be open and available for play by Friday, Ocotber 25 – as soon as that fence is removed!

Note: Some minor cosmetic damage to the playground surfacing in the southern play area will be repaired next spring; in the meantime, the entire playground is safe to use.

As for other aspects of Folwell Park’s improvements project – new tennis courts and athletic field improvements, as budget allows – MPRB will solicit construction bids this winter. If a successful bid is submitted, construction on those improvements begin in spring 2020.

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