This 7.5 acre park in the heart of the St. Anthony Falls area contains a 32' tall mound whose top may be accessed by a spiral sidewalk. At the top there is seating amidst a grove of trees with good views of the Mississippi River, the historic Stone Arch Bridge, Guthrie Theater, and the historic milling district. The memorial for the I-35 bridge collapse was built across from Gold Medal Park.
Gold Medal Park, which opened in May of 2007, is among Minneapolis' newest parks. The area was a gathering place for Minnesotans in the aftermath of the I-35W bridge collapse that occurred on August 1, 2007. Today, the Gold Medal Park Conservancy maintains the park and similar urban areas near the central Mississippi riverfront.
