Robbinsdale’s Graeser Park Restoration Complete
After three years, nearly half a million dollars, and countless hours of work, a park restoration project in Robbinsdale is officially complete.
Crews installed an interpretive sign at Graeser Park Wednesday afternoon. The sign details the history of the park and the work done by the Minnesota Department of Transportation to restore it to its former glory.
The installation of the sign effectively marks the end of the restoration, which also included rebuilding picnic tables and restoring the iconic beehive fireplace.
“Mostly we’re all just excited to see it come together, because it’s been really a three-year process for MnDOT, but the community’s been involved forever,” said Karen Laukkonen, a Lilac Way enthusiast who designed the interpretive sign at Graeser Park.
A “Preservation Celebration” featuring the Robbinsdale City Band will take place on Thursday, July 6 from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
