Welcome to Brooklyn Park!

We are excited to have you as a member of our community.

With a population of more than 77,000 people, Brooklyn Park is the sixth-largest city in Minnesota and the fourth largest in the metropolitan area. We are a community that believes our residents are our strongest asset and the key to making Brooklyn Park thrive and prosper.

Nestled along the Mississippi River, Brooklyn Park features almost 2,000 acres of parkland, two golf courses and 120 miles of trails for outdoor enthusiasts. We are also home to a community center which features a gymnasium, two hockey rinks, meeting rooms, racquetball courts and a senior center.

Brooklyn Park has a residential housing stock that fits into just about every budget. We also have a unique mix of retail, commercial and industrial businesses.

We make sure the needs of residents always come first. As part of our Community Engagement Initiative, we always make residents and stakeholders primary when it comes to important decision making. It is our mandate to consistently work to engage Brooklyn Park residents to make sure diverse viewpoints are shared openly and honestly.

We are a proud and active community with numerous youth, adult and senior organizations, including important citizen boards that enrich our community. With all this, there is no question, Brooklyn Park is a thriving community inspiring pride where opportunities exist for all.
