Description

This Lilac Park poster features the beehive fireplace, picnic table and the stunning 100′ lilac hedge that blooms each May. In 2008, the beehive fireplace and picnic table from the old ‘Lilac Park’ on Minnetonka Boulevard were moved here, saving them from demolition. After renewal by the city of St. Louis Park in 2009, the park was renamed Lilac Park to honor that lost park. It is now a beloved feature in St. Louis Park, right off the bike trail. Lilac Park is a sister park to Rock Island Park.

Custom designed and printed locally

Each logo was designed by Karen Laukkonen of Restore Lilac Way. The designs were inspired by Works Progress Administration (WPA) posters of the 1930s and 1940s. She has donated her time and expenses for Restore Lilac Way since 2007.

The posters are printed locally at Gleason Printing in St. Louis Park, MN on high quality satin cover paper. Karen reviews each poster before shipping for the best quality control. These are not printed ‘on-demand’—the posters have been pre-printed and are available at Restore Lilac Way.
