Minneapolis would join other cities if the City Council and Park Board approve of the plan. Some top leaders support the proposal but others are pushing for changes.

What the hell is the "Three Rivers Park District"? Why is Hennepin County acquiring park land in Ramsey County??? PARKS AND REC = WASTE THEY SHOULD BE ELIMINATED IN MANY CITY BUDGETS! CUT LGA-STATE AID TO CITIES AND COUNTIES! MAKE THEM PAY THEIR OWN BILLS!

Ummm...first of all, the Minneapolis Park Board (mentioned in the article) is a completely different entity than Three Rivers Park District. Second, Three Rivers is no longer a "Hennepin County" government agency. It is it's own entity with representatives from several counties. Finally...the only land they obtained in Ramsey County is the old Silver Lake Camp in St. Anthony; a Minneapolis Suburb that just happens to have a small piece of itself in Ramsey county. As far as the park systems equalling waste...that's a concern in all public agencies. OTOH, lose your park system and watch the good tax paying folks leave.
