Logan Park Neighborhood Association (LPNA) with Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board (MPRB) intends to build a timber framed performance pavilion at Logan Park this Summer! As part of our Neighborhood Priority Planning Process over the last two years, the community has identified Park Projects as a top priority, and creating a focal point for the neighborhood.
The pavilion will serve multiple purposes. It will serve as a picnic shelter; where residents, schools, and community groups gather for picnics and outdoor events. Participants and spectators for the many athletic activities in the park will enjoy the pavilion as a shady area as well. Perhaps most exciting is the opportunity for performance activities, and bringing a whole new level of engagement to the park and neighborhood. LPNA will work with MPRB to develop programming with local artists and community groups to expand on our already well-attended events such as Movies in the Park and Jazz in the Park.
The most important thing our new performance pavilion will bring is a greater sense of community for all Logan Park residents. We need your help to turn this vision into a reality! How you can help:
