About

Published on Jun 20, 2015

North Mississippi Regional Park is a joint effort of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Three Rivers Park District and lies within the larger Mississippi National River and Recreation Area. The park, located near the northern border of Minneapolis, Minnesota, borders the western shore of the Mississippi River. Connected to the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway through biking trails, it ties the Anoka County park system to the parkways of Minneapolis.
