Elliot Park Rec Center won't take summer break


Youth in Elliot Park won't have to scratch their heads over what to do the final days of summer.

The 1000 E. 14th St. recreation center, slated to close Aug. 17-31, will remain open. The facility offers programming year-round.

Elliot Park Neighborhood, Inc. (EPNI) redirected $2,000 to keep the center from closing, said EPNI Executive Director Tom Reid.

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board voted last year to close the city's recreational center for two weeks to cut expenses.
