SW Parks Plan Meeting #1 Notes

What is the Southwest Service Area Master Plan?

It’s a unique opportunity to set the vision for Southwest Minneapolis neighborhood parks for the coming decades. The project will examine all outdoor park facilities at each site and create park plans that will guide decisions on capital improvements—including NPP20 funding allocations.

The SW Parks Plan includes 43 total park properties:

  • 23 Neighborhood Parks
  • 13 Park Triangles
  • 3 Parkways
  • 2 Tot Lots
  • 1 Former Trolley Path
  • 1 Standalone Wading Pool

SW Parks Plan Project Map

This project does not include any recreation centers, specialty areas or areas classified as regional parkland: Bde Maka Ska (formerly Lake Calhoun) Park, Beard’s Plaisance, Brownie Park, Cedar Lake Park, Cedar Lake Regional Trail, Kenilworth Regional Trail, Lake Harriet Park, Lake of the Isles Park, Lyndale Park, Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, Minnehaha Parkway Regional Trail, Morrison Park (home of Minneapolis Institute of Art), Roberts Bird Sanctuary, Soo Line Community Garden and William Berry Park.

All CAC meetings are open to the public and have time set aside for public comment. Please call 612-230-6472 or email planning@minneapolisparks.org at least two business days in advance of a meeting if you require reasonable modification or language translation.
