Starting May 26, the Coldwater Spring parking lot will close to public parking and will be transformed into a community space to serve various purposes:
Coldwater Spring Parking Lot Closure
Green SpaceWe’re continuing our habitat restoration efforts to restore the prairie, oak savanna forest, and wetlands. A gravel bed tree nursery will be installed to help with tree survivability, learn more at parkconnection.org/plantforthefuture.
Coldwater Spring is located between two major bike trails. We’re expanding bike parking and encouraging people to bike or ride the bus/lightrail to access the park. Additionally, a Nice Ride station is conveniently located on Minnehaha Park Drive South.
We’re trying to make Coldwater Spring a more inclusive space by expanding the number of handicapped parking lot spaces.
A temporary interpretative station will be installed to engage the community with Coldwater Spring’s history, habitat restoration efforts, and volunteer opportunities.
