Hamline Play Area will be renovated in 2020-2021. Proposed work will focus on removal and replacement of existing play equipment and surfacing. Other enhancements may include new walks, site furnishings, signage, and landscaping. The most recent improvements to the play area were 28 years ago, in 1992. Located alongside Snelling Avenue, Hamline Park contains a variety of amenities for visitors to use across four sections divided by trails. The northern section features a spacious playground, the eastern quarter features a recently-renovated futsal court, to the south is a basketball court as well as bike racks and additional fitness equipment, and adjacent to Snelling Avenue is open green space.
This project is funded by a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).
The Friends of Hamline Park, Hamline Midway Coalition, and St. Paul Parks and Recreation are working together to gather feedback for a new play area coming to Hamline Park in 2021. Your responses are part of a process through the end of 2020 that will include this survey, one or more community meetings in the fall, and a Community Advisory Committee -- all to ensure that the new play area meets the needs of those who use and enjoy this space.
