In 1988, neighbors joined together to save a large parcel of land from development on the north and east sides of Cedar Lake in Minneapolis. Seeking out and inviting all interested parties to participate, the group focused on a vision—to establish a nature park in the heart of the city–and adopted a set of organizational principles for Cedar Lake Park. The Park is open for all to enjoy and makes it possible to commune with nature in the City.  
 
• All ages are welcome for this project, but it is requested that adults supervise younger children.
