Tell us your story about Minneapolis parks

Do you have a favorite Minneapolis park? Why? How has your favorite park changed over time? Do you have a picture?  Send your thoughts as a “comment” below. Perhaps you’re in this picture. Or maybe you just remember the scene on Nokomis beach.

Do you remember when Waite Park was built? Did you ever attend a community sing at Folwell Park? Did you meet your wife at the old Lake Harriet bandstand or between high school football games at Parade Stadium?

The story of Minneapolis parks is really your story. Send us a chapter.
