I used to bring my lunch here, sit on the steps and enjoy myself. I haven't been here for a while. The fountain and pool have been shut down and drained of water. The flower beds are ok, but not maintained the best. The trees...More

Used to be a haven for downtown, outside, city life (fountains, reflection pools, waterfalls, ice rink, grandstand, meditation spot, etc.), but has also become tired. Orchestra Hall has been revamped, but Peavy Plaza has been left behind. Needs a new water system, copper pipes, cleaning...More

Live music during the summer. Visually pleasing. Take note of all the colorful characters you will see on the Nicollet Mall side. If you are lucky you will see an actual arrest made by the Minneapolis or Metro Transit Police.

Not really much to see here, unless you like observing pan-handlers. This concrete monstrosity would seem more in place in cold-war Russia than downtown Minneapolis. It also has not been maintained terribly well. So, unless you are shooting an amateur reboot of 'A Clockwork Orange"...More

Unfortunately this place is going to be torn down, so it wasn't looking its best.

Should be shut down due to it being used as homeless/99% housing. These people are ruining the park for others.

This is one perk of working downtown! So much fun stuff happening here regularly. Nice to have a park in the middle of business

I love Peavy Plaza during Summerfest. There is so much life on that end of the Nicollet Mall, with open air music, outdoor seating and great people watching. Fun for people of all ages.
