Northside walk to the river

Thursday, September 21, 2017 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm
Folwell Recreation Center, 1615 N Dowling Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55412
N Dowling Avenue sidewalk three blocks from the river

Calling all Northsiders! 

Join your neighbors, elected officials, city and park board staff, and FMR to walk and talk about the future of Dowling between the Mighty Mississippi and Lyndale Avenue North in North Minneapolis. This Dowling Avenue path to the river is currently the only direct route to the Upper Harbor Terminal, soon to be redeveloped to potentially feature a riverfront concert venue, new bike trails, and more.

More details to come. But, for now, please register below and begin to invite your friends and neighbors. There will be food, fun and hopefully a bit of sun! All are welcome. Due to the nature of this event, full participation involves walking or otherwise traveling half of a mile outdoors along N Dowling Avenue. A school bus will be provided to transport attendees between Folwell Park and the walk start/end. Additionally, those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. If you have any concerns or require additional accommodations, please reach out to Alicia at or 651.222.2193 x29 asap.

Thank you to our partners and funders: 

Funding for this project is provided by the Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota. Other partners include the city of Minneapolis & Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board.
