Hall Park is part of the Near North neighborhood, divided into two sections and connected by a pedestrian bridge. It features a tot lot playground, walking paths, grills and a basketball court.

Hall Park Wading Pool

Because this park is across the street from Elizabeth Hall School and Franklin Middle School, its wading pool opens after school releases in early June and closes before school resumes in late August. There are no lifeguards on duty at Minneapolis wading pools. Summer pool hours are 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Coming Hall Park Improvements

MPRB released a draft concept plan for improvements to the park in February of 2022. Construction was originally scheduled to begin in 2022, but has been pushed back to 2023. A a second phase is planned for 2025.

Proposed Updates Include:

The following projects are among the updates being considered for the park and final plans will depend on community input and budget.

  • A new bicycle training track. This looks like it is going to be really fun with both boardwalk-style and dirt paths and including elements like hoops and berms.  The Minneapolis Parks system already had three bicycle skills parks. If you would like to see examples of what to expect, visit Lake Nokomis Skills Park, Bryn Mawr Skills Park or Northeast Skills Park. Learn more about these bike parks and the dozen that are part of the MPRB master plan for future development at the Minneapolis Bike Parks website. MPRB’s website does not mention any of these tracks and I was not aware of even the one closest to my home.  I’m looking forward to checking it out in the spring.
  • An improved and expanded playground. Equipment for children ages 2-5 will be colorful and developmentally appropriate. Equipment for ages 5-12 will include climbing, balancing and upper body strengthening aspects. There will also be a small Adventure play area with netting and climbing aspects. This area will use the topography of the park for enhanced play.
  • Updates to the swimming pool will include a shade structure and benches.
  • A small orchard
  • An updated picnic area
