The current playground will be replaced with new equipment. In addition, the playground will be getting a new ADA-compliant engineered wood fiber surface. The new surface will be similar to wood chips and will allow access for children of all abilities.
A new park shelter building will better fit in with the character of the Arden neighborhood. It features lots of window to provide natural light indoors, covered outdoor areas for picnic tables and sustainable features.
The building will offer views of the creek, playground, large lawn and skating areas.
Some of the improvements being made by the project, a joint effort of the City of Edina and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District:
New and improved trails
Increased fishing areas
Regional stormwater management
Better creek water quality
Expanded biodiversity in the park
Removal of invasive buckthorn
