The Minnehaha Parkway Regional Trail is the parkland running along Minnehaha Creek from Minnehaha Regional Park to the western city limit, which has historical roots dating back to Theodore Wirth in 1928. The trail is in the early stages of development.
Minnehaha Parkway Regional Trail Master Plan
The first stage of any Minneapolis Parks & Rec Board (“MPRB”) park project is to create a master plan. MPRB spends a great deal of time and effort to get resident input and consider ecology and history when developing a new park or trail. The Minnehaha Parkway Regional Trail Master Plan is actually a collaboration between MPRB, the City of Minneapolis and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District.
Once the planning committee has examined ecology, history, trails, the creek, the roadway, tennis courts, bridges, water access and anything else brought up during the planning process, a master plan will be created and shared with the public. Implementation will take place over the next 20 years.
