Master Plan

In 2018, the Brooklyn Park Recreation and Parks Department completed, and city council approved 10-year master plan for the Historic Eidem Farm. As part of the $26 million Park Bond Referendum that was passed in 2018, funds are allocated for updates to the Historic Eidem Farm including a permanent bathroom building. Currently, Recreation and Parks staff are working with Bluestem Heritage Group and SALA Architects to create and implement an interpretive signage plan. This will allow farm visitors to learn more about the history of the farm and Brooklyn Park during self-guided tours. Installation is expected in spring 2023. Staff continue to implement parts of the Eidem Farm interpretive plan as a part of welcoming community to the site and encouraging hands-on participation in this unique setting.
