Join us as Tom Evers, Executive Director of the Minneapolis Parks Foundation, provides updates on two of the signature RiverFirst projects slated to begin soon: Water Works and the Great Northern Greenway. The RiverFirst Initiative is a vision for revitalizing the Mississippi Riverfront from St. Anthony Falls to the city's northern border. Signature park projects Water Works, the Great Northern Greenway, the Upper Harbor Terminal and Halls Island will complete a missing link in the historic Grand Rounds and result in miles of new trails connecting neighborhoods in North and Northeast Minneapolis to the river. The Parks Foundation is working closely with the Park Board and fundraising to deliver this vision.
