New plaza coming soon next to Lake Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska WWI Memorial

People for Parks offering customized pavers to help fund new plaza coming this fall near World War I Mast Memorial

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) would like to thank People for Parks for its generous donation of $17,500 for a new permeable paver plaza next to the World War I Mast Memorial at the northeast end of Lake Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska.

The new plaza will be constructed this fall and connect a recently improved pedestrian trail to the existing WWI Mast Memorial that sits north of the Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska Refectory, where the Tin Fish restaurant currently leases space. The Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska-Harriet Master Plan, approved by MPRB Commissioners in May 2017, included restoration of historic objects and structures within the Northeast Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska focus area. 

People for Parks will manage a paver customization program where members of the public can customize a paver that will be installed in the plaza by MPRB staff. This program will be run in a similar fashion to the existing paver customization program at the Lake Harriet Bandshell.
