Join Us Tonight 

Share your thoughts about the 325 Blake Road Restoration and Redevelopment project tonight!

The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District (MCWD) is continuing to plan improvements to the natural space along Minnehaha Creek at the 325 Blake Road site in Hopkins, which will connect the surrounding neighborhood to the Minnehaha Creek Greenway trail system, light rail transit, and regional bike trail.  Attend tonight's event and help us learn about your preferences on various aspects of the public space design, such as:
  • Should there be design elements which engage children in play?
  • How do you want to interact with water on the site?
  • What kind of walking and biking trails do you want?
In-Person Open House
Wednesday, July 7th
Stop in any time between 6:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.

Cottageville Park Pavilion
415 Blake Rd N, Hopkins, MN
Rain or shine

A Somali language interpreter will be available at the event to assist residents as needed.

MCWD and the City of Hopkins have also selected a development partner, Alatus, to lead a transformative re-development on the site. While the focus of the public meeting/open house is on the natural space at the project site, the community will have an opportunity to meet the developer at the event.  More information on the development proposal is available on the city of Hopkin's website.

About this Project:

The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District (MCWD) is leading an effort, in partnership with the City of Hopkins and numerous public and private partners, to transform a former industrial site at 325 Blake Road into a vibrant space where people and nature thrive together. 

The 325 Blake Road Restoration and Redevelopment project is an effort to marry two sets of goals:

  • The restoration will complete a missing link in the Minnehaha Creek Greenway, a decade-long effort to restore the creek and connect a system of green space and trails around Minnehaha Creek to the surrounding community
  • At the same time, MCWD is working closely with the City of Hopkins and a private partner to integrate a transformative, transit-oriented redevelopment into the site
