Friends of Mounds Park recap year, look to future projects at annual meeting


The Friends of Mounds Park had their annual meeting on October 24. This year it was in the downstairs banquet room of Obb’s and was attended by a dozen or so people.

There was a recap of the last year’s events, including a members’ wine and cheese party and participation in the National Night Out and St. Paul Parks Clean up.

The work on the park improvements by the city have also begun, including a new interpretive kiosk and some repair of the Pavilion at Earl and Mounds. Other good news was the announcement that city parks employee Kathleen Angelo would be assigned as planner for the park.

In the future, the group, whose membership is around 45, is looking forward to work to improve the playground and planning a possible amphitheater that could host small music and theater productions. They are also looking for more members. For more information, you can contact the group on Facebook or on their web site at
