Before we became the “City of Lakes,” we were the RiverFirst.


Minneapolis’ renowned park system has long been championed by individuals and institutions who valued the role green and public space play in a healthy, productive community. Our famous Chain of Lakes Regional Park is a vibrant example of the abiding impact of private investment in our parks.


Today, with RiverFirst, we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to establish new culturally and economically significant parks on the Upper Riverfront.
