River Park is a beautiful 41-acre community park located on the eastern border of Brooklyn Park on the banks of the Mississippi River and the Mississippi River Regional Water Trail. The park was approved for a redevelopment project that began May 2020. Picnic shelters at River Park will be closed for use in 2020, and the 81st Ave entrance will also be closed for the year. However, the Mississippi River Paddle Share program and boat launch off 83rd Ave will remain open. Rent a kayak from the paddle share and take off from River Park for a leisurely 2-3 route to Boom Island in Minneapolis!
River Park’s new design and features will include more trail connections, improved water access to the Mississippi River, shoreline restoration, removal of invasive species, new park building/shelter, multi-purpose field space, prairie restoration, and overlooks of the park.
