The City of Edina's Parks and Recreation department will be starting a master planning process in November for the site that once held the Fred Richards Golf Course. The City will have a significant public engagement process to inform and direct the master planning process for Fred Richard Park.

Background: At the March 18, 2014 City Council meeting, the Council accepted the recommendation of staff and the Park Board to close Fred Richards Golf Course at the end of the 2014 season. A month later, the City Council authorized a consulting services proposal for a reuse study and visioning for a master plan for Fred Richards Golf Course. Now the City is doing what it can to use an inclusive public process in order to create a park design plan for the future of Fred Richards Golf Course.
