Fred Richards Park is being created from the former Fred Richards Golf Course, which closed in 2014. The 43-acre site, almost double the size of Centennial Lakes Park, will become a multi-use park for a variety of activities year round.
Fred Richards Park will subtly divide into sections, providing different experiences for people and nature. It also includes what was formerly known as Lake Edina Park.
Phase I - Complete
This portion of the master plan made multiple improvements to the east end entrance area in the Parklawn neighborhood at 4400 Parklawn Ave.
Please note there is no parking lot for this area of the park. Street parking is available.
The former golf clubhouse, 7640 Parklawn Ave., is in use for some Parks & Recreation classes and events.
Work has started on other sections of the master plan.
