New bike racks have been installed around St. Anthony Park. This was a project of the St. Anthony Park Community Council’s Transportation Committee, funded by University of Minnesota’s Good Neighbor Fund.

The design of the bike racks is enhanced by the addition of “St. Anthony Park” and a laser-cut bicycle in a bright, beautiful green, adding visual interest to the locations where they are placed. Additionally, a helix-shaped design was chosen for the Joy of the People location in South St. Anthony Park. This durable, stainless-steel rack gives a clean, modernized look to the locations, which previously had multiple temporary racks.

The majority of the hoop racks are along the newly constructed Como Avenues in North St. Anthony Park. This will provide patrons a safe place to leave their bikes, while further beautifying the area. Racks have also been placed at Avalon School and Jennings Community School.
