St. Cloud Times – St. Cloud is moving forward with plans to reopen the 50-acre Friedrich Park, which is at the end of University Drive. A land swap with St. Cloud State University has been approved by the City Council and Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Board of Trustees. The final paperwork now has to be done to make the deal official.
Once that’s done, the city can move on to more pressing matters: cleaning up a park that has been officially closed for four decades. The city hopes to open the park in August.
