Current Projects

Rosland Park

The Nine Mile Creek Watershed District is installing a new stormwater filtration system to help keep phosphorous out of Lake Cornelia and downstream to Lake Edina. This should help the water quality and prevent outbreaks of dangerous blue-green algae. 

The project has required blocking off a section of Rosland park and lots of heavy equipment.

Major work completion: Expected end of November 2021
Final work: Spring 2022 (plantings and touchup)

Bristol & Mavelle Park

A concept plan has been approved for stormwater improvements and light recreational use of this open space that's also known as Lynmar Basin. 

The City and the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District are working on this project together. 

Lewis Park Playground

The playground equipment at Lewis Park will be replaced in 2022.  

Children and adults who visit Lewis Park are asked to take a short survey to let us know what style of playground they would like and what particular pieces, such as swings, slides and climbers. 

Look for that survey soon at
