Stevens Square Park is a pretty little park with a big, modern playground in the Stevens Square-Loring Heights neighborhood of Minneapolis. Only the size of a city block, the park packs in green space, the large playground, a basketball court and a tennis court. There is no off-street parking and street parking can be hard to find a times. However, as it is located not far from downtown Minneapolis, busing is a viable option. Grab and 11, 17 or 18 from Downtown.

7 Ideas for Family Fun at Stevens Square Park

While Stevens Square is not a large park, it does have plenty to keep make a fun family day at the park.

  1. Climb up the “apple” or through the “inchworm” on the playground. One of the more creative playgrounds in the Twin Cities, kids and parents both can appreciate it.
  2. Play tag or hide-and-go-seek among the tree strewn green space.
  3. Pack a picnic. This park has a grill available for picnickers
  4. Bring a basketball for a game of one on one.
  5. Play a game of tennis together.
  6. Take a stroll through the park and maybe around the neighborhood (see the self-guided tour below).
  7. Take a walk a few blocks longer. This park is only a few blocks from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (always FREE) and Hennepin History Musuem (time your visit for a first Thursday, FREE from 1pm-8pm).

A Self-Guided Tour of Stevens Square Neighborhood

Stroll away from the park, to see the beautiful neighborhood sites. The neighborhood association has created a short interactive tour that begins at the Boiler Room Coffee House a block away from the park, through beautiful community gardens and at the Wednesday Farmers Market.

Red Hot Art Fair

Not as famous as some of the other Minneapolis art fairs, Stevens Square is the home of the Red Hot Art Fair each summer, which is normally a two-day festival of the arts held in the hot days of mid-July.
