You're encouraged to find out more about RiverFIRST, 7-9:00PM this Thursday, August 4, at our next community meeting, where we'll also ask you to share your thoughts about why the river is important and what should come next. (Map and directions) Folks from the Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership and the City of Minneapolis will also present and be available for questions.

Farview Park is one of the oldest parks in Minneapolis, situated atop what is considered the high point in the city. Today, you can still enjoy panoramic views of the Minneapolis skyline, as well as the Mississippi River, only a short distance to the east.  But Interstate 94 cuts off access to the river from this great park--is it possible to rejoin river and city?

Come find out and share your ideas!
