Peavey Park in metropolitan Minneapolis is a notorious place in the city for it's frequent crimes, shoot-outs, and drug commerce. The Ventura Villiage Community, in conjunction with the Minneapolis Police Department, hired the Minnesota Design Center to study the possibilities of curbing the crime while providing a design strategy for the park and the community. The intent was to design the park with a well-fitting program of activities in an effort to create a welcoming civic park place for the benefit and joy of the community.
