One reason people love looking at condo & single-family homes in Minneapolis is to feel at home in the natural beauty surrounding Minnehaha Creek.
And the future of your Minneapolis condo or loft surroundings is unfolding today.
Check out Minneapolis Parks and Recreation’s Regional Trail Master Plan, focusing on Minnehaha Regional Park out to western Minneapolis.
Over the coming three decades, watch for new paddling and tubing launch areas, additional wading pools, play sets and exercise courses, bike parks, and even an urban arboretum.
Minneapolis trails and parks are major attractions for home buyers.
Many condo and home buyers tell us that they want to live within a few blocks of the wonderful urban trail network that runs through the city and along the Minneapolis waterside.
Now, residents will enjoy dedicated running and biking trails. Intersections will provide enhanced safety, too.
Funding for the evolving project comes from the city’s Parks and Trails Legacy Fund. Minneapolis residents voted in 2008 to fund the protection of the natural landmarks, parks and trails that make this city such a splendid example of urban living.
The plan will incorporate both natural vistas and public art installations.
Our famous Parkway stretches through a watershed that encompasses not only Minnehaha Creek and Minnehaha Falls, but also Lake Minnetonka and the entire Minneapolis Chain of Lakes, with 129 lakes and eight large creeks.
Condo & Homeowners love the sense of being in the forest in urban Minneapolis. Local residents asked Parks and Recreation not to overdevelop the meandering trails and scenic waterside parklands. Art works will be in keeping with the spectacular wetlands surrounding the Mississippi River.
We’ll have more on this site about the parks and trails of Minneapolis. The beauty of the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District is unique and special to our city.
