North Mississippi Regional Park Trail Reconstruction

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Three Rivers Park District owns and operates the portion of North Mississippi Regional Park located in the city of Brooklyn Center from 53rd Avenue N. to the Interstate Hwy. 694 overpass. In 2022, Three Rivers Park District will reconstruct the paved multi-use trail located in this portion of the park. The project will involve replacement of approximately 1.3 miles of trail, as well as accessibility improvements to rest areas along the trail and near the fishing pier.

The project is expected to begin the week of June 27.


What will be open and closed?

  • The paved trail will be closed for approximately three months from 53rd Avenue N. north to the Interstate Hwy. 694 overpass.
  • The park entrance at 57th Avenue N. will be closed during the project.
  • The park road will be closed to vehicles north of 57th Avenue N. during the project.
  • The Interstate Hwy. 694 trail underpass will be closed for approximately three weeks, but access to the trail underpass will be open on weekends during the closure.
  • Areas of North Mississippi Regional Park owned and operated by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (the portions of the park south of 53rd Avenue N.) will remain open regular hours and are unaffected by this project.


Three Rivers Park District held a virtual open house about the project on February 24, 2022. If you'd like to make written comments about the project, please comment in the space below.
