Farview Park is a 21-acre park tucked into North Minneapolis. Family friendly amenities include a playground, a wading pool, a large turf playing field and a recreation center.  The park is known for its beautiful panoramic hilltop that is perfect for rolling down in the summer. While it is not one of Minneapolis Park & Rec’s official sledding hills, people do sled there. The parks department asks that non-official hills be used with caution (note the trees on this hill) and with respect for other park users.

Farview Park Wading Pool

The wading pool historically opens Memorial Day weekend and closes on Labor Day. The pool is free to use between the hours 10 am to 9 pm daily. There are no lifeguards on duty. This pool is one of the newer zero depth entry pools with a splash-pad like spray feature.
