Created 130 years ago and now the nation’s top-ranked park system, Minneapolis parks are responding to the 21st century needs of a changing population, new technologies, and our evolving climate. Join us for a dynamic conversation with three award-winning designers and thought-leaders whose work inspires us to re-imagine our greenspace through the lens of youth, diversity, and the role parks play in vibrant communities of today and for the next generation.
