Boom Island, BF Nelson parks set for $2 million renovation

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board on March 16 voted to spend $2 million in state and Metropolitan Council funds in order to develop BF Nelson Park and make improvements to Boom Island Park along the Mississippi River.

The Park Board acquired both parks in the 1980s. Boom Island has since been developed into a popular picnic area, boat launch and green space along the river. But its neighboring property to the south, BF Nelson, has sat mostly undeveloped.
