Join the Minneapolis Parks Foundation Executive Director Tom Evers and board member Sue Bennett on a walking tour of the future Water Works site. Located on the birthplace of Minneapolis’s milling district, Water Works is a future park site being reimagined by the Minneapolis Parks Foundation in partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board to create a world-class place of arrival in the Central Riverfront district. This summer, the former Fuji Ya building will be deconstructed to begin the process of transforming the site into a signature park space. Participants will get a personalized tour of the site before construction, including stories of the site’s history and the people who used the land before current times. Optional: Return to Mill City Quarter at the end of the tour for refreshments!
