Painter Park Recreation Center

The recreation center has a family game room, a community kitchen, a craft room, a meeting room and a multipurpose room. The building was updated over the winter of 2018-19 and reopened in April 2019. The most significant update was the addition of air conditioning, offering another cool option for hot summer days (find a list of free, air-conditioned buildings here). Other updates included some remodeling of the lobby and reception desk, better lighting, and updates to ADA-compliant accessibility.

Summer Meals at Painter

The park has participated in the summer meals program, offering free lunch to children under 18 years old while school is on summer break. Learn more about this program in our article, Free Summer Meals for Minnesota Kids. To find current times and dates see the Minneapolis Park's website.

Coming Updates
