Open House for the Wirth Park Adventure and Welcome Center
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) will host a second community open house on February 3 at MPRB Headquarters to share early design concepts for the Wirth Park Adventure and Welcome Center. The meeting will be from 6:00 – 7:30 pm at MPRB Headquarters which are located at 2117 West River Road in Minneapolis.
There will be no formal presentation. Members of the public are welcome to come any time to view the design concepts and stay as long as they can. MPRB staff and consultants will be available to receive community input and answer questions.
The Wirth Adventure and Welcome Center is a collaborative project between the MPRB and the Loppet Foundation. This entirely new facility will include site improvements and a new building. It will focus on cross-country skiing, par-3 golf support, snowboarding, mountain bike racing, and snow-tubing.
