Earlier this month, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak called for creation of a park called “Armory Yard” to be located near the historic Armory along 5th Street South.

Personally what they describe with the metal and Kasota stone sounds cheap to me but then again I am not really fond of the looks of the twins stadium.
