Library presentation: What’s Up with Downtown Parks?

Many projects designed to improve our city by adding parks, improving transportation corridors for vehicles, bikers and pedestrians, and creating a more connected and workable metropolitan area, are under review.

If you’ve been curious about what is being contemplated and by whom, be sure to attend the “What’s Up with Downtown Parks?” presentation.

The meeting will explore the initiatives stretching from the Walker Sculpture Garden through Loring Park, the Greenway, Peavey Plaza, Nicollet Mall and the ‘Gateway’ to the Mississippi and along the riverbanks from the Stone Arch Bridge to the city’s northern boundary. Business leader David Wilson, Sarah Harris of the Downtown Improvement District and Bruce Chamberlain of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board will provide inside perspectives on the proposed downtown greening projects, including locations, potential designs, key players and anticipated timelines. There will be time allowed for questions. The event is free, and all are welcome.
