Finding Your Fun in Fridley

Project Overview

The City of Fridley undertook a community-driven comprehensive park system planning process in 2019-2020 known as “Finding Your FUN in Fridley!”

The outcome of this process was a planning document that is meant to guide future development, redevelopment, and improvements to ensure the city has a balanced and equitable park system that meets the needs of the community.

The park system plan process has included the following:Finding Your Fun logo with compass

  • Project Vision Statement
  • Community Workshops
  • Needs assessment findings
  • Community goals and objectives

The City of Fridley is now undertaking the next steps in achieving the community goals and objectives established in the planning process, which is developing an implementation plan, determining priorities, and identifying potential funding mechanisms.

Updates via Interactive Map

The City of Fridley has developed an interactive parks map as a method for the community to continually have access to current park information, concept plans, projects and schedules. The map will continue to be updated so we encourage you to visit often to see what’s new.

Information on the map: 

  • Existing park locations, amenities and imagery
  • Upcoming conceptual park plans and idea
  • When concept plans are updated and uploaded to the map, there will be additional methods to provide comments and feedback on park plans and priorities
  • A survey where you can provide comments and your feedback on park plans and priorities
  • Announcements on future informational meetings
  • Future link to past meetings, workshops and reports
  • Report a Concern or Maintenance Issue
