Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park Master Plan Development

Three Rivers Park District and the City of Brooklyn Park are developing a joint master plan for Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park and the Brooklyn Park Environmental Nature Area. A master plan lays out the long-term plan for the park and includes identifying future recreation development, natural and cultural resource protection goals, and associated costs. Development of a master plan includes an extensive public engagement process which allows community members to participate in shaping the park’s vision and development concept.

When construction takes place (anticipated to begin in 2020), we'll also change the park's name. Three potential names have been identified, and were voted on by the public. Check back on or after Nov. 20 to find out which name was chosen.
