Preferred concepts for all 33 neighborhood park properties in NE/SE Minneapolis are posted online

Thank you to all of the community members working together to create the East of the River Park Master Plan! We’re in the last phase of the planning process, in which the project’s Community Advisory Committee (CAC) recommends one concept for all 33 Minneapolis neighborhood park properties east of the Mississippi River, as well as identifying areas for new park connections in NE/SE Minneapolis.

All of the preferred concepts for the 33 neighborhood park properties in NE/SE Minneapolis have been posted online, along with a survey for public feedback. Click the links below to open a PDF document with every preferred concept and access the survey
