Park building rehab begins this fallPosted on 5 July, 2018
A sweeping overhaul of Bossen Field Park began in 2016. Last fall, the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) and Bossen Field Park users celebrated a number a new and upgraded park amenities:
- Six new softball fields realigned in a safer layout
- New playground
- New full-size basketball court
- New pathways and parking
- Two new open play fields
Park Building Upgrades
The park improvements will continue this fall when the existing park building is renovated thanks to rehabilitation funds allocated through the 20-Year Neighborhood Park Plan (NPP20). Building improvements include:
- Repairs to the damaged building exterior
- Bathroom upgrades
- New single-use ADA-compliant bathroom
- Building lighting upgrades
- New door security hardware
The water line to the building, which supplies water for the wading pool and bathrooms, is also scheduled to be replaced. The deteriorating condition of the pipe requires full replacement, despite multiple repairs in recent years.
The MPRB appreciates the public’s patience while the second phase of this project is completed. Work on the building is expected to begin in August and wrap up this fall. We ask that you please stay away from areas under construction.
