West Minnehaha Recreation Center Play Area


The play area at West Minnehaha Recreation Center was installed over 25 years ago. Both the play area and Recreation Center are heavily used; Attendance records from 2006 indicate over 83,000 people utilized the center, placing it 13th of 41 centers. CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) funding has been secured for new play area equipment and other site improvements such as walkways, benches, and landscaping as funding allows.

Our first meeting was a huge success. We established Goals and Objectives of the project, reviewed the opportunities and constraints of the site, developed a list of Needs and Wants, and discussed some play equipment styles.

A board will be available at the recreation center for people to ‘vote’ on pieces of equipment they think would be nice additions to the new play area.

Our next meeting will be June 15th, 2009 at 6:30 at the West Minnehaha Recreation Center

Meeting 1 – May 28, 2008
