In Minneapolis, our parks define who we are as people and as a city. So it’s not surprising that we’ve prioritized bringing waterfront parks to the few areas where they don’t yet reach - particularly along the riverfront of North and Northeast Minneapolis.
Those new parks may be a good idea, but how are we going to find the money to fund them? Can we afford to expand our park system -- or would we be crazy not to?
Explore this timely topic with us at a fun evening event. Join Jayne Miller, Superintendent of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, for what we expect will be an insightful and enjoyable interview with the always-entertaining Theater of Public Policy.
