Created by Colleen Patterson and a group of dedicated Graeser Park fans, GPR&P supports both the restoration and long-term preservation of this historic Lilac Way park.
Graeser Park features one of only two 1939 WPA-built beehive fireplaces in the U.S. Located in Robbinsdale MN, it’s the only beehive in its original location.
Robbinsdale has been trying to get the title to the property, indicating interest going back to the 1990s. Fundraising will kickoff only AFTER title is transferred to Robbinsdale.
