Help Us Complete the Masterpiece!

For the first time in generations, Minneapolis has the opportunity to fulfill the founding vision of our parks system – to connect every corner of the city through a continuous riverfront park system on the banks of the mighty Mississippi.

Through the RiverFirst Initiative, the Minneapolis Parks Foundation is helping to transform 5.5 miles of industrialized riverfront into a green and growing network of parks and trails that will give neighborhoods in North and Northeast Minneapolis newfound access to our region’s greatest natural asset – the Mississippi River.

Here’s a complete list of our RiverFirst Campaign Donors.
