Both meetings are part of the Theodore Wirth Regional Park Forum, a multi-day collaborative visioning process that will help the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, Hennepin County, and the community best understand the issues and opportunities surrounding introduction of the proposed Bottineau Transitway to the landscape adjacent to the park.
