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.

Hall Park Improvements

MPRB begam the following projects in in July of 2023 and should be completed in the fall. Portions of the park will be closed during construction, but MPRB expects them to reopen in October 2023.

  • 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. 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. Hall Park’s track will be a bit fancier than the others with a bikeable sculpture incorporated into the skills course , designed and built by Juxtaposition Arts’ Youth Design team
  • 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.

Other planned improvements set for a later date (2025?):

  • Updates to the swimming pool will include a shade structure and benches.
  • A small orchard
  • An updated picnic area
