Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board (MPRB) project staff is holding an intensive, week-long creative session the week of October 19 through October 23rd to generate design approaches for the Downtown Service Area Master Plan.  There are two major public events on October 19 and October 22 being offered.   We look forward to gathering input from the community and also to provide feedback for the Design Team.

This project is part of a joint effort between the MPRB and the City of Minneapolis to improve parks and public spaces downtown.
