Currie Park Playground

The Playground

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.

Improvement Projects at Currie Park

The pool is older and scheduled to be replaced with a splash-pad style pool. After a delay in funding, Currie updates are back on. Construction, which began in the fall of 2019 has been slow. As of August 2020:
  • New restroom building (still under construction);
  • New splash pad (still under construction);
  • New basketball court (completed & reopened 8/20);
  • Playground updates (completed & reopened 8/20); and
  • Trail and lighting improvements (??).

Construction is planned to be completed by summer of 2020. Minneapolis Parks suggests the following nearby parks during this time: East Phillips ParkElliot ParkFranklin Steele Square and Peavey Field Park all have pools (hopefully this won't be an issue). The new Phillips Aquatics Center with its two indoor pools is also nearby. Other parks, without pools, include The Commons, Riverside Park, and Matthews Park.
