Restoration of Lilac Way

Lilac Park is already restored, and there is growing community interest to restore Graeser Park in Robbinsdale, and Rock Island in St. Louis Park.

RESTORED: Lilac Park, 2009

A beehive saved, a historic park restored and a big Grand Opening in 2009.

Maintaining Graeser Park in hopes of restoration

The Robbinsdale Lions Club and the Graeser Park Beehivers have volunteered their time and energy since 2010, cleaning and weeding to bring this park back to life.

Lilac Park restoration process

See how the park came together with restoration and new landscaping.

Moving a historic beehive fireplace

One of only two beehive fireplaces left in the U.S., the beehive at the original Lilac Park on Minnetonka Boulevard was carefully and lovingly moved, saving it from demolition.

Lilac Park Grand Opening

The City of St. Louis Park had a lovely ceremony and party to welcome the community to this restored Lilac Way park.
