The Phillips Neighborhood Park and Recreation CURA Research Project began as a proposal from the Phillips Community Parks Initiative (PCPI) researching community needs regarding the planning of Phillips Parks and Recreation facilities. The research aims to identify community perceived ﾑgaps' between community needs and Phillips Park and Recreation services provided. To this end, this paper: 1) provides a detailed list of the physical amenities and programs available at the Phillips parks; 2) presents common themes found in then informant interviews and 3) offers recommendations for future planning of Community Service Area (CSA) park system. To date, no complete list of CSA services are available for planning purposes; the inventory was made for the use of community members, park staff, and park board members to assist with future planning. The main findings from the project were presented to PCPI during a final presentation in June.
Conducted on behalf of Midtown Phillips Neighborhood Association. Supported by Neighborhood Partnerships for Community Research (NPCR), a program of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA), University of Minnesota.
