Boulevard Plaza - The Fun Awaits in 2018

Boulevard Plaza

“Boulevard Plaza” is officially the new name of the area and grounds featuring the city’s first splash pad and brand new park. The location of Boulevard Plaza at 11000 Crooked Lake Boulevard, has become a community gathering place, hosting several city events including the Coon Rapids 4th of July Community Celebration, the Farmers Market in the summer, public skating events year-round and other special activities at the Coon Rapids Ice Center.

Now, the city’s first splash pad and a brand new park is set to open in late spring/early summer 2018. The splash pad features water sprayers and fountains, and the park features slides, swings and climbing equipment suitable for children of all ages. The area also features new landscaping and walking trails.

At this time, the park is not open to the public. You will notice orange fencing material surrounding the park to keep children off of the equipment. Crews will install wood chips and perform finishing work at the park and splash pad this spring. A grand opening event is being planned for a date yet to be determined. Watch the spring Coon Rapids Connection City newsletter for more information.

The park project was possible thanks to funding from the Park Bond approved by voters in 2013.
