Learn about progress on Water Works project at open houses scheduled May 1 and May 2
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) and the Minneapolis Parks Foundation are hosting two community open houses to inform the public about progress on the Water Works project. Water Works is a transformative park development project adjacent to St. Anthony Falls and the Stone Arch Bridge that will bring significant new historic, cultural, and recreational amenities to one of the most iconic locations in Minneapolis.
The open houses will be held Monday, May 1, 6-8 pm at Mill City Museum, and Tuesday, May 2, 11:30 am-1:30 pm at the Water Works site along West River Parkway.
About the Water Works Open Houses
At both open houses, community members will be able to see updated designs and hear from MPRB and Parks Foundation staff and the design team. Registration is not required for either public meeting.
The Monday, May 1, open house will begin at 6 pm and be preceded by a walking tour of the Water Works site at 5:30 pm. Following the tour, the meeting will proceed with a presentation by MPRB and Parks Foundation staff and design team members, followed by one-on-one discussion and opportunities to comment on the designs.
The Tuesday, May 2, meeting will have no prepared presentation. Community members are invited to stop by and speak with staff and designers, view the designs, and share their comments.
