Join Us for DESIGN WEEK, June 27-30, at North Commons Park

Three events and countless ideas — stop by or stay awhile, June 27-30, and help jumpstart a community-rooted reimagining of North Commons Park

The Minneapolis Park Board is hosting three days of interactive and hands-on activities as part of Design Week at North Commons Park, June 27-30. With your help, these events will jumpstart the design process for a renewed community center campus.

At all events, members of MPRB’s North Commons Phase 1 planning and design team will be on-hand all week to hear your ideas and answer questions as you experiment with 3D building models, learn how designs are made, and respond to ideas in real time.
