WELCOME TO BROOKLYN PARK, MINNESOTA

Brooklyn Park offers a variety of community events and activities year-round. No matter the season, you'll get a chance to relax and enjoy yourself here. The City of Brooklyn Park provides a wide range of services that greatly contribute to the quality of life in our community.  Brooklyn Park, located on the west bank of the Mississippi River, in the northwest section of Hennepin County, is the fourth-largest city in the Metropolitan area—sixth-largest in the state. The city occupies approximately 17,020 acres—27 square miles.

Brooklyn Park is about 85 percent developed, with the next area of growth under development north of Highway 610. Brooklyn Park is easily accessible (about 10 miles northwest of downtown Minneapolis) via I-694, Hwy. 10, County Rd. 81, Hwy. 169 and Hwy. 252.

 

Are we headed in the right direction?

After talking to you, we've used your input to create goals for Brooklyn Park in 2025. Tell us what you think about our draft plan and you'll be entered into a prize drawing! So, what are you waiting for?
