Welcome Back to Peavey Plaza

On July 2, the Peavey Plaza fountains turn on for the first time this season. Green Minneapolis is excited to welcome everyone to enjoy Minneapolis’ historic plaza and experience the iconic fountains. Come by to dip your toes and get your daily dose of fresh air.

Recharge in Nature, Safely

Parks and green spaces support mental health and relieve stress. Open public spaces allow us to create social and community connections while maintaining physical distance. Please support the community by maintaining appropriate social distancing and safety practices.

Experience your Downtown

Green Minneapolis is transforming downtown from gray to green – and this is just the beginning.

Green Minneapolis envisions a green future for downtown with trees on every street and active public spaces. We are enriching quality of life, creating a healthier environment and connecting people through place.

The powerful link between city governments and private funders, Green Minneapolis is an advocate for the vibrant downtown that will enable Minneapolis to grow and thrive.

We are also your voice to get involved in making downtown greener and greater.

The revitalized Peavey Plaza has opened, complete with beautiful flowing fountains and a vibrant tree canopy. First as fundraising partner and now as the plaza operator, Green Minneapolis is bringing the new Peavey to life.

Greening Lab is a partner-initiative to grow the downtown forest by providing supplemental watering for young street trees, tracking tree conditions and maintenance and introducing new planting techniques.

Green Minneapolis launched The Commons, your downtown oasis. In the park’s opening years, we set a high standard of care for the new park and made it a destination with free activities, from games and reading carts to concerts and movies.

Green Minneapolis is a key partner in transforming a primary gateway to our city into a green, pedestrian-friendly corridor.
