Pocket Park Outreach


Three Rivers has launched several equity initiative projects to expand our outreach in images.pngunderserved areas and populations. One such initiative involves the development of pocket parks and the provision of programs along regional trails in the inner tier suburbs, and includes extensive community engagement with communities along the identified trails. Initial efforts are focusing on partnerships with the Cities of Brooklyn Center and Richfield. We are discussing options with the City of Brooklyn Center to enhance the Shingle Creek Regional Trail experience as it passes through Centennial Park by the Community Center and Library. In the City of Richfield, we are jointly exploring options to expand programming in connection with our Nine Mile Creek and new Nokomis-Minnesota River Trails.
