25 Years of NE/SE Soccer
The Northeast Park Summer Celebration will commemorate 25 years of the NE/SE Soccer program, which was founded at Northeast Park by Sally Jones and Carol Kalberer (Green).
This program provided opportunities for elementary- and middle school- aged youth to participate in a low-cost, high-quality soccer instruction and leagues in NE and SE Minneapolis. Past, present, and future coaches, players, refs, Board Members and park staff are welcome to celebrate alongside Northeast neighbors.
A new ‘adventure course’ playground opened behind Jim Lupient Water Park in June. Located near the new Northeast Recreation Center, this new playground will be dedicated in a short ceremony at 5:45 pm. Bring the kids to check out this super fun new park attraction!
