Share your thoughts on playground improvements at Kenny Park!
The Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board (MPRB) has announced an improvement project at Kenny Park. The project will replace the playground equipment and also update areas directly adjacent to the playground. The playground is being built generally within the existing play container footprints and will involve new surfacing and play equipment.
MPRB is requesting feedback from the community that will directly inform the design for the new playground. A concept plan for the playground will be based on feedback received from a community survey, engagement that occurred through the Southwest Service Area Master Plan and community-led playground surveys previously completed.
Community members are invited to take an online survey to share their preferences for playground improvements.The survey is open through February 28, 2021.
Design/Community Engagement: spring-summer 2021
Construction: late summer-early fall 2021

In June 2020, the Minneapolis City Council pledged to create a new model of community safety. As part of that, they committed to a yearlong process of community engagement. The engagement will ask the Minneapolis community what the new model should look like.
One of the first steps of the engagement process is a survey for members of the Minneapolis community to identify what safety looks like, and to provide ideas for how a new model can be accomplished. Results from this survey will be used to help create recommendations for elected leaders. This will also be used to help guide our next steps in our community engagement. The deadline to complete the survey is Nov. 20.
