Beltrami Park
  Map Location

Minneapolis, MN 55413
Phone: 612 370-4920


Beltrami Park is ''crawling'' with opportunities for activity, including a huge big-eyed purple and green bug to climb over, a bright red train waiting to pull out of the station and a house in the sand.

While the kids are enjoying the playground shaded by pine trees, adults can find enjoyment lounging at the picnic tables or playing a game of bocce ball.

Enjoy games on the soccer/softball field, a match on the tennis courts, a game of sand volleyball or a pick-up game on the full-size basketball court.

The Park was named in honor of Giacomo Constantino Beltrami (1779-1855), an Italian jurist, scholar and explorer who is credited with being the first European to identify the source of the Mississippi River in Minnesota in 1823. A bronze plaque honoring Beltrami, which still stands, was placed in the park in 1948.

Historical Profile: More information about this and other parks is included in Parks, Lakes, Trails and So Much More, a richly detailed account of the histories of Minneapolis’ renowned recreational system.
