Several Commons’ features put on hold for park’s debut


A number of design elements planned for the Commons park next to the Vikings stadium will not be part of the project’s first phase when it opens this summer given the pace of fundraising for the project.

To date, fundraisers have raised $10.5 million for the 4.2-acre Downtown East park — nearly 50 percent of their goal. The total includes an additional $2 million from the Vikings, bringing the team’s total contribution to $3 million.
