CIDNA Speaker Series presents...
Linking Shrinking Lakes, a Deadly Railroad Crossing, and the Northwest Passage: CIDNA's Rich Park History

Guest speaker: David Smith, Minneapolis Parks historian

Did you know that Cedar-Isles-Dean is the only Minneapolis neighborhood to include parts of three lakes? Or that Cedar Lake used to be five feet higher than it is today? Do you know how Park Siding Park got its name?

All Minneapolis neighborhoods cherish their parks. But more than most, Cedar-Isles-Dean was largely shaped by our parks. On Sunday, February 25, David C. Smith will regale us with stories about Cedar-Isles-Dean's rich park history.

Historian David Smith has literally "written the book" about the history of Minneapolis parks. His 2008 book City of Parks: The Story of Minneapolis Parks covers the first 125 years of our park system. Mr. Smith blogs on the history of our parks and contributes the historical descriptions for the Park Board's website. And he is a delightful speaker on a subject near and dear to all of us.

The CIDNA Speaker Series is a project of your Cedar-Isles-Dean Neighborhood Association board. The programs are free and open to all.
