Project Background
This project includes two parts: the design of a brand new trailhead facility on the east side of Lake Phalen and redesign of the existing Phalen Picnic Pavilion on the west side of the lake. Parks and Recreation issued a Request for Proposals for design of these facilities in November 2021, and following evaluation of nine proposals received, partnered with Snow Kreilich Architects for the project design. 

We would love to hear from you, please consider completing this 4-question survey about Phalen Regional Park and the Trailhead and Pavilion projects. 

Design and planning began in February 2022, and the team held a pop-up community event on the walking trails near the picnic pavilion on March 15, 2022 from 3:30-5:30pm. Please click here to review the pop-up meeting materials.

Phalen Pavilion & Trailhead Site

This portion of the project will design and construct a combined trailhead and restroom facility at the connection of Phalen Regional Park and the Bruce Vento Regional Trail. It will include two gender-neutral restrooms and improve the surrounding landscape. Construction is planned for 2022.

Design will include a re-visioning of the existing pavilion. Although today it's a popular place for events and gathering, future functional and aesthetic improvements will aim to better serve the park and the community.
