Regional park improvements range from landscaping and resurfacing trails, to maintaining and constructing 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.
