The Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to
creating a world-class Minneapolis riverfront for future generations.
The City of Minneapolis and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board acted together to
create this corporation “to facilitate and support coordinated revitalization of the Mississippi
riverfront in Minneapolis.”
Our twenty-four member board reflects the critical importance of private-public collaboration to
make a great river for a great city. Private leaders from business and community groups serve
on the board with public elected and appointed leaders.
The Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership serves as a champion for a vibrant Mississippi riverfront,
to create an enduring legacy now and for future generations. The Minneapolis Riverfront
Partnership spotlights the Mississippi River and creates a space to work out river solutions that
enhance our city.
We facilitate and support coordinated revitalization of the Mississippi riverfront in Minneapolis.
We convene partners and raise funds to accelerate riverfront improvements such as trails,
parks, and historic interpretation.
We increase public awareness of existing river access and advocate for better access.
We create public forums to address riverfront issues and host public outings.
We track success in achieving a healthy ecosystem, exceptional parks and trails, world-class
history and culture, and vital, livable communities.
