The Browndale Neighborhood Association formed in 1996. They host an annual winter skating party, spring egg hunt, summer picnic and fall bonfire. Block captains help deliver a regular neighborhood newsletter and gardeners maintain flower plantings in the park.

What is the difference between community and neighborhood sidewalks?
are located on streets that are directly adjacent to community or area destinations, such as the library, schools, retail areas, parks, regional trails, transit nodes and places of worship. Most of these sidewalks are located along roadways that have high traffic volumes.
Neighborhood sidewalks are all other sidewalks in the city. They provide accessibility for pedestrians within the immediate area and feed into the community sidewalk system. These sidewalks are generally located on lower volume roads.
What's the Adopt-a-Park or Garden Program?
We hope you’ll consider adopting a park or garden near you! Monitor one as a family, community group, neighborhood, church or business. It’s a great way to get outdoors and take pride in the community you live in. We just ask that you visit the park twice a month through September to pick up litter and check for damage. (Assignments can be arranged around summer vacation schedules.) For more information, contact Volunteer Coordinator Laura Smith at 952.928.2847 or
What are the rules for posting signs in St. Louis Park?
Open house, for sale, for rent and other temporary signs cannot be posted on public property, trees or the public right-of-way, including curbside areas of lawns, utility poles and traffic signs. City ordinance also regulates the size and placement of permanent signs. For more information, contact Zoning Administrator Gary Morrison at 952.924.2592 or
