7 Ideas for Family Fun at Bryn Mawr Meadows Park

  2. Hit the wading pool on a hot summer day.
  3. Go for a Family Bike Ride. Bassett’s Creek Trail runs through this park and Cedar Lake Regional Trail and the Luce Line Regional Trail are not far away and in 2023, MPRB added a bicycle skills park in the woods.
  4. Pack a picnic. Picnic areas are first-come, first serve and the park has charcoal grills available.
  5. Practice your favorite sport. Bring your sports gear to practice together. This park has fields for soccer, cricket, and softball and tennis courts.
  6. Bring the stroller for a walk on the paved walking paths.
  7. Practice Bike Skills. Located on an old tennis court, the skills path allows bikers to practice biking skills on paths with wooden elements that require balance and control.

Bryn Mawr Wading Pool

This park is not adjacent to a school, therefore its usual pool season begins Memorial Day Weekend and ends after Labor Day. However, it is always a good idea to check MPRB’s wading pool page to see which pools are open or closed at any time.

The Bicycle Skills Park

Perfect for families, the bicycle skills park built in the fall of 2023 has features for both beginner and more advanced trail riders. MPRB incorporated features from the park’s old tennis courts. More advanced features include a teeter-totter and a 6-inch balance beam, but beginners can choose to go around these features.

The bike park is located on a natural surface trail loop in Bryn Mawr’s northeast corner that runs through the woods near the Luce Line Trail and new pedestrian/bicycle bridge to the Bassett Creek Valley Station on the Metro Transit Green Line.

No Public Ice Skating

The ice rink at this park is only open for broomball league and does not have free loaner equipment. Most other Minneapolis parks do have loaner equipment available in their warming houses.

Coming Updates to Bryn Mawr

Minneapolis Parks is in the early stages of an improvements project at this park.  MPRB has developed a preferred concept plan and is now seeking community input before refining and finalizing. The plan is expected to take several years to fully implement, but will work to balance amenities with the athletic fields, but reducing but improving the current ball diamonds and re-arranging fields for reduced impact on nearby neighbors and updating the non-athletic field portion of the park to better serve the neighborhood. Most work should be done by the end of June 2023.

Updates  include:

  • A conservatory-like building that will allow for indoor winter picnics and act as a warming house for skaters
  • A new mountain bike training track (late summer 2023)
  • A new oval, open lawn area for picnicking and open play
  • A new nature/water play area – this may be in place of the existing wading pool and playground (late summer 2023)
  • New picnic shelter
  • Relocation of batting cages, basketball courts, cricket field, skating rinks and parking lot
  • Improvements to the sports fields
  • Connection to multiple nearby trails
  • An adult fitness circuit built along the trails
  • Addition of a pleasure rink. Currently this park only offers a broomball rink.
