Minneapolis is America's Best City Park System

Share   |  Posted Jul. 8, 2013 by Anthony Ongaro

It comes as little surprise to us here at Nice Ride that Minneapolis was recently ranked the top park system in the country - it's part of what makes the twin cities so great for cyclists and active living.  According to the study, 94% of Minneapolis residents live within a 10 minute walk to a park.  It all comes down to planning, says Jayne Miller, Superintendant of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. "The system here is unique and far superior to any other park system in the country," she says. "In the mid-1800s, civic leaders were very forward-thinking and visionary."  

As we continue forward, it's incredibly important to maintain the momentum of bike-walk friendly infrastructure and easy access to the incredible parks here in the twin cities.  If you're interested in finding out more about biking and park related events, check out some of the following sites:

How do I return a bike?

Push the front wheel of the bike firmly into the bike dock until the green light on the dock comes on. The green light indicates that the bike is locked and properly returned. If the red light on the bike dock stays on, remove the bike and try another empty bike dock. The bike remains your responsibility until it is properly returned.
