Need a shot of spring? 

Consider heading to the City Center to check out a new pop-up park designed by Gwen Meckle and Sean Ryan.

The indoor garden is in the City Center's street-level atrium. It's blooming with a variety of flowers — lilies, hyacinth, tulips, chrysantemums — and has trees and twinkling lights. 

There's several activities planned next week for the indoor park, including Mexican Hat Dance lessons for toddlers and preschoolers on Monday, lessons from the Friends of the Minnesota Orchestra on Tuesday, gardening lessons from Kakish on Wednesday, arts and crafts on Thursday and story time on Friday. The activities start around 10 a.m. and wrap up around noon.
