MPRB: 54th Street Play Area Opens November 25th

The new play area in the triangle park near the intersection of E 54th Street and Bloomington Avenue S opens Wednesday, Nov. 25.

New asphalt trails and concrete walks are complete and now the contractor will spread a seed mix over turf areas. It’s too cold for the anything to grow this year, but the seed mix is expected to establish when temperatures rise next spring. Please stay off the turf areas until then.

Over the next few days workers will perform a safety check of the play equipment and install picnic tables and benches. A grand opening ceremony celebrating the new play area is scheduled next spring.

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board wishes to express its sincere gratitude for park users’ patience and understanding while the project was delayed, and hopes the community enjoys this wonderful new public amenity.
