“Don't go.”

“Don't go.”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

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

“Fun place to go in downtown mpls”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

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

“Great Vibe!”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

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.

“Random concerts are alright”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

They sometimes have random concerts, which are alright, but besides that there's not much here.

“Homeless shelter”
Reviewed May 7, 2012 via mobile

I love Peavey Plaza especially in the summer where a variety of music is played on many nights. Being next to Orchestra Hall is also a plus.

The problem this year is part of the park has been taken over by the 99% protest group. A bunch of the protesters sleep overnight and it literally looks like a homeless camp with sleeping bags, tarps and junk scattered all over.

I suspect if the protesters are allowed to stay for the summer, some events will be cancelled.

Too bad!
