Currie Park is a small park in the Riverside neighborhood, just east of downtown Minneapolis and sitting almost in the shadow of US Bank Stadium. It is conveniently close to light rail transit and the Hiawatha Trail, making it an easy park to visit from and a nice starting or stopping point when visiting Downtown Minneapolis. Recent updates to this park included a new playground and splash pad, along with a new restroom building near the splash pad. The basketball court was also updated. Other family friendly amenities include space to picnic with a grill, sports courts and fields, restroom facilities and a drinking fountain and a walking path.
The playground, which was updated in 2020, is busy on summer evenings. The colorful jungle gym bustles with bigger kids while the tot area offers a fun car structure and talking tubes for passing secret messages. The sandy playground floor is perfect for digging with digger tool or with hands and there are swings available for all levels - tots through big kids.
New Splash Pad Opens Summer 2021
Coyle Community Center
The park building is operated by Pillsbury United Communities who runs community programs from this location.
Planned Cedar-Riverside Recreation Center
MPRB is in the pre-design phase of planning a new community recreation center that will likely be located in Currie Park. The current plan would place the recreation center where the playground currently stands. A more-condensed playground would move between the new splash pad and playing fields. Stay tuned as plans continue.
