Shingle Creek Park Corridor Visioning

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. How does that current facility and programs fit this community? What’s missing? What can we do? Next steps?

We invite you to join in the important dialogue and work of visioning and working toward Creating a Community Center next Wednesday January 24th from 6-8pm!



Here’s the upcoming calendar regarding the planning efforts for the Northside Minneapolis Parks.

Check out theMPRB upcoming agendas and dates for January 8th and 10th and the earmark February for a great opportunity for more community input!


Visioning starts with brainstorming ideas!
