See you there! There is community meeting this upcoming week. Rebar has synthesized all of the amazing community feedback we’ve received so far into three potential designs. Come check them out and help us tailor them into the final proposal.
We’ve been busy flyering throughout the neighborhood to spread the word. Here’s us at the Rondo Library!
The meeting is Tuesday, December 10th at Jackson Elementary. Check out the meeting flyer here: UPCOMING COMMUNITY MEETINGS FLYER

Planning is underway! This will be the kick-off in a series of meetings for community members to participate in Frogtown Park and Farm planning and design. This process will include both planning for the entire 12-acre park as well as the 5-acre urban farm site to be developed within the park. The design process kicks off this month, and is expected to continue through January 2014–at which point the City will own the land, making it St. Paul’s newest public park!
