Water those trees - Help Maintain our Urban Forest

It’s that time of year again! Hot July temperatures and lack of rainfall are stressing trees. As a result the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board (MPRB) Forestry Division urges residents to water their trees, especially young trees planted on boulevards. .”We really need residents to step forward to help us maintain these new trees by watering them once or twice a week as we deal with dry conditions,” says Paul Domholt, Community Forestry Coordinator.

Reconstructed St. Anthony Parkway bike trails now open

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board is pleased to announce that reconstruction of 3.3 miles of bike trails along St. Anthony Parkway in Northeast Minneapolis is complete.

The 32-year-old trail from the Camden Bridge (at 37th Ave. NE) east to Ulysses St. NE was replaced with a 10 ft. wide bituminous path. From Ulysses St. NE east to Stinson Parkway the sidewalk on the north side was removed and a 10-foot wide concrete combined pedestrian and bike path was installed.

St. Anthony Parkway is part of the Northeast District of the nationally-recognized Grand Rounds Scenic Byway system. Encompassing more than 50 miles of parkway, and bicycle and pedestrian trails, the Grand Rounds offer a picturesque tour of Minneapolis.

More information and maps of the St. Anthony Parkway and the Grand Rounds are available at www.minneapolisparks.org. Maps are also available by calling 612-230-6400.
