The CP Railroad tracks separate Shingle Creek and Lind-Bohanon Neighborhoods from the rest of the community assets due to long-delays at the two crossings. Shingle Creek neighborhood also has no retail assets in this corner of the city. Creekview Park Community Center is our only public asset to help attract and retain residents that offers space for large community events and meetings after 6pm, access to a swimming pool and outdoor park assets. Many community residents have been asking for more programming for youth and seniors. The Parkside Single family homes on the Greenway across the street from Creekview Park Community Center are bringing over 100 new families and residents to the community that could

Kids’ activities and refreshments featured at family-friendly workshops in late February and early March
Northside community members have contributed an amazing range of ideas and input on local neighborhood parks over the past eight months. Staff from the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) have been using this information and working with a design team to develop initial concepts for every Minneapolis neighborhood park north of I-394 and west of the Mississippi River. This process is a key part of creating an overall long-term plan known as the North Service Area Master Plan (NSAMP).
The next step is asking people to view and comment on the park design concepts at a series of public workshops. Each concept includes options and locations for a range of amenities and activities; most parks have multiple concepts.
About the workshops
- Everyone is invited: please bring family, friends, neighbors and others!
- Each workshop includes kids’ activities and refreshments
- Four workshops give people a choice of dates and locations. Each has the same format and park design concepts. You can attend more than one, but don’t need to.

The Shingle Creek Neighborhood Work, History, Notes on Creating a Community Center
The results of our Robust Community Engagement in 2017 led to SCNA earmarking $100,000 for Creating A Community Center. We currently have Creekview Park Community Center in the MPRB identified Shingle Creek Park Corridor and the Shingle Creek neighborhood in the Camden Planning District an area serving almost 30,000 residents in Minneapolis. This area is the same size as Brooklyn Center or Roseville. How does the current facility and programs fit this community? What’s missing? What can we do? Next steps?
We invite you to review the important notes from previous visioning and work toward Creating a Community Center and join in helping us Create a 21st Community Center!
