Overview

The Park Board is designed to serve in an advisory capacity to the City Council on matters relating to park development and the City’s recreation areas and facilities. 

There are seven members on the Board. Each board member serves a two-year term and can be reappointed for another two-year term. There are also two ex-officio youth board members who serve a one-year term and can be reappointed for another one-year term.

Objectives

The objectives of the Board are:

  • To establish objectives and polices related to park development and facility maintenance;
  • To advise on future development of parkland, recreation areas and facilities;
  • To increase public understanding and acceptance of practices and policies; and
  • To serve as a forum for resident, business, and community involvement on park development and maintenance.

Hopkins / Minnetonka Joint Recreation Program

As needed, members from both the Hopkins and Minnetonka Park Boards convene a sub-committee to review and discuss unresolved issues related to Joint Recreation programs and facilities. Recommendations of the sub-committee are then presented back to each city’s park board for review. Final recommendations that have gained the support of both park boards are then forwarded to each respective city council for consideration. If unified council agreement is not achieved, issues are sent back to the sub-committee for further study.
