Amid the lively Downtown Minneapolis atmosphere is a beautiful urban oasis known as Elliot Park. Located between Hennepin County Medical Center and North Central University, Elliot Park has become a mecca for everyone from college students to business professionals looking for a bit of leisurely bliss. You’ll find visitors enjoying their lunch break with co-workers at one of the many picnic tables, while others come to people-watch, read or relax on the grassy knolls. Bring the kids for fun times in the wading pool and playground. Feel free to sign-up for a number of recreational activities offered through the recreation center, including flag football, softball, tennis and basketball.
