Friends of Midway Peace Park:
Our Mission/Our Commitment.

Friends of Midway Peace Park is a grassroots community effort to activate local residents with a park that they played an integral role in championing from 2010-present. Now that the park is done, our work continues via civic engagement, park programming, website and outreach materials translated into Hmong, Oromo, Somali, Spanish, Vietnamese and English.  Our goal is to empower our community via the park.  Join us!

Our members include: Lexington-Hamline Community Coalition, Skyline Tower, Health Partners, Gordon Parks High School, Concordia University, Hamline Midway Coalition and more.

Our work is currently funded through a residency with the University of Minnesota’s Liberal Arts Engagement Hub.
