On Tuesday, December 18 from 6:00-7:00pm at Hopkins City Hall, the City of Hopkins will host an open house for community members to view the final design for Cottageville Park.
This past year, the City of Hopkins has collected ideas and heard from neighborhood residents about what to include in the expanded park. The City hired Cuningham Group, a landscape architecture firm, to create a design that incorporates the ideas expressed by community members.
Check out this Hopkins Patch article for a sneak peek at the design that will be on display at the open house.
