Sibley Pool

The park has one of the last remaining round wading pools in the Minneapolis park system.  It is due to be replaced in 2022. This park does not share space with a school, so the pool is usually opened from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.

Updates to Sibley Park

Sibley Park will see an improvement project soon. Planned for the summer of 2022, the project will replace the playground equipment and the wading pool.

Possible Name Change

MPRB may also explore a possible name change for the park. Henry Sibley is one of those problematic historical icons that the Twin Cities has named so many places and things after. He was the first governor of our state and held other political offices. He also oversaw the mass execution of 38 Dakotas after the Dakota War in 1862. According to MPR, "It was the largest mass execution in U.S. history."

MPRB will be looking for community feedback and opinions on both the updates and on the possible name change and making final decisions based on the outcome of those surveys.

Sibley Recreation Center

The recreation center's amenities include a community kitchen, computer lab, craft room, meeting room and multipurpose room.  Hours vary with the school year.
