Minneapolis Public Parks

Minneapolis City Park, also called an Urban Park or Municipal Park, provides recreation and green space for visitors and the residents of the local community. Common features of a City Park include walking paths, running trails, gardens, playgrounds, picnic tables, open lawns, and sports fields. Some may include public restrooms and an information center. A Neighborhood Park is a smaller-scale version of a City Park intended for the residents of the surrounding neighborhood. They are typically designed to give Minneapolis residents, especially families with young children, open recreation space within walking distance of their homes.

Minneapolis Town Parks

A Town Green is a Park that serves as a common area for civic gatherings, public celebrations, and Minneapolis community events. They are often located in the center of a municipality, adjacent to the Minneapolis City or Town Hall, and they are common sites for farmers markets, concerts, and similar gatherings. A City Square is an urban alternative to a Town Green and fulfills a similar purpose in a less natural setting.

Athletic Parks in Minneapolis, Minnesota

Minneapolis Athletic Parks consists of fields and facilities necessary for recreational and competitive sports. An Athletic Park may be designated for a single sport or activity, or it may be a complex of facilities that serves as a hub for athletic activities in a locality or region.

Minnesota State Parks & National Parks

National and State Parks also serve as tourist destinations and recreational areas. National Parks are managed by the U.S. National Parks Service, while Minnesota State Parks are usually managed by the Minnesota Department of Conservation or Department of Environmental Protection.
