Share your thoughts, ideas and experiences to help create long-term plan for parks in NE/SE Minneapolis

Do you use neighborhood parks in Northeast or Southeast Minneapolis? If so, we’d like to hear from you!

The East of the River Park Master Plan will create cohesive long-term plans for 36 Minneapolis park properties east of the Mississippi River. The project launched last fall. Since then, MPRB staff have hosted two official Community Advisory Committee (CAC) meetings, visited 18 different community events and worked with a Youth Design Team to begin developing the plan.

Now there’s an online survey available for people who may not have the time to find us out in the community or attend CAC meetings. Please take a few minutes to reflect on and share your experiences in NE/SE Minneapolis parks. Survey responses will be accepted until Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018.
