Fall Fun at the Washburn Tot Lot

Come to the Washburn Tot Lot for a start-of-school fun pop-up event on Saturday, September 17 from 10am–11:30am! All are welcome, so tell your neighbors and come on down for…

  • FREE treats
  • Activities for all ages
  • On-site voter registration thanks to the League of Women Voters
  • Free renters’ resources
  • New Washburn Tot Lot pollinator garden community dreaming open house (see below for more info!)

We want to extend a special invitation to all of our neighbors who rent. The ANA is committed to better reaching our renters who make up nearly 15% of the households in Armatage.

New Washburn Tot Lot Pollinator Garden

The ANA is so excited to announce that the neighborhood has received grant funding from the State of Minnesota’s Lawns to Legumes Neighborhood Demonstration Program and the Minneapolis People for Parks Foundation to fund a pollinator garden at the Washburn Tot Lot!  The new garden will be installed along the alley to provide a safe, beautiful barrier that will benefit our local pollinators!

Community engagement will begin at this event and we anticipate the new garden will be installed in May 2023 with our partner, Metro Blooms.
