Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board wants to hear from you!


Public comment period opens for park plans
After 18 months of community-based planning and design, a draft version of the North Service Area Master Plan (NSAMP) is ready for public review and comment. The public comment period runs through October 27, 2018.

About the North Service Area Master Plan

NSAMP will create new, long-term plans for more than 30 North Minneapolis neighborhood parks and regional trails north of I-394 and west of the Mississippi River, guiding capital improvements over the next 20 to 30 years at these locations. NSAMP reflects community desires for how parks are operated, maintained and improved, and includes plans for all exterior facilities (athletic fields, playgrounds, trails, etc.), but not buildings or recreation centers.
