About this project

The MPRB’s Downtown Service Area Master Plan will set the vision for future park and recreation development and improvements in the downtown area. It will establish a new, urban model for service delivery, maintenance, funding and operation of parks in downtown Minneapolis.

This project is part of a joint effort between the MPRB and City of Minneapolis to improve parks and public spaces downtown. The cooperative work done on the MPRB’s Downtown Service Area Master Plan and the City of Minneapolis’ Downtown Public Realm Framework is known collectively as Pathways To Places: Shaping Downtown Together.
