Armatage Park and its recreation center bustle with recreational activities for a variety of interests and all ages. Family-friendly amenities include a playground, a wading pool and a skate park. There is a Little Free Library onsite. It also maintains a skating rink in the winter.
MPRB has plans to update the playground at this park. A plan has been approved and the new playground should be completed by late summer or early fall, 2021. The approved plan includes:
- New playground equipment designed for universal accessibility.
- Surfacing of existing play areas.
- An ADA-accessible swing, belt swing and two infant swings
- A tire swing.
Free Summer Meals for Kids
Armatage participates in the summer meals program, offering free weekday meals to children under 18 years old. Meal time can vary from year to year.
Armatage Park Wading Pool
Armatage Park shares space with Armatage Elementary School; therefore, its wading pool is open mid-June through late August, just prior to school resuming. The pool is free to use between the hours 10 am to 9 pm daily. There are no lifeguards on duty.
In the winter months, Armatage maintains outdoor skating rinks for both hockey and skating. There is a warming room and some free loaner skates available.
Armatage Skate Park
One of the six current skate parks in Minneapolis is located in Armatage. Skaters particularly like the ledge and the smooth riding surface of the concrete base. MPRB has recently collected feedback on its skate parks and is in the process of implementing a 20-year plan to improve and expand the number of the skate parks in the city.
