Downtown East Commons Park





Located adjacent to the new Vikings Stadium in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, Downtown East Commons serves as a multi-dimensional outdoor space for locals and visitors alike.  On a daily basis, the park provides open green space for residents and office workers in the surrounding mixed-use developments.  On game days, the park functions as a main path of egress for fans arriving and departing the stadium, as well as a staging area for ancillary events held in conjunction with the stadium activities.  The lighting for the park was designed to support this wide array of uses.  Direct illumination of open areas and pedestrian paths are provided by pole mounted, adjustable LED luminaires arrayed throughout the park and organized to keep the large lawns free of obstructions.  Low level lighting provides accents within the park “rooms,” defining these more intimate areas for small group activities.
