Regional park improvements range from landscaping and resurfacing trails, to maintaining and construction facilities and acquiring acres of new land to expand existing parks.
Council staff work with the Metropolitan Parks and Open Space Commission (MPOSC) to review improvement needs. Their recommendations are compiled into the annual Regional Parks Capital Improvement Program, which is reviewed and approved by the full Metropolitan Council.
For a list of planned park improvements, see the 2012-2013 Regional Parks Capital Improvement projects. (14 pages, pdf).
