Minneapolis Park Board leads by example with energy savings pilot project

Energy efficiency improvements coming to five rec centers

Green means more to the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) than the ideal color of lawns and trees. Green also means practicing environmental sustainability – Living Green. The MPRB leads by example when it comes to green living. Organic gardening techniques are being implemented at Longfellow Gardens. The Rec Plus childcare program uses reusable plates, bowls, cups and flatware. The Minneapolis Bike Tour uses tap water instead of bottled water, and composts food waste.

The latest example is a pilot project to implement enhancements at five recreation centers. The McKinstry Energy Efficiency Project, which was recently approved by the MPRB Board of Commissioners, will set in motion improvements to the Lake Nokomis, Logan, Matthews, McRae and Pershing recreation centers.
