Valentine Park in Arden Hills has re-opened and features many new and updated pieces of equipment, such as a new basketball court, new swing sets and the playground area too.
Around 150 residents, the mayor, city council and city staff members braved the blazing heat on Tuesday, July 16 for the grand re-opening of Valentine Park in Arden Hills.
The re-opening included a free ice cream social, children’s events, a ribbon cutting ceremony and dedication of the brand new Don Messerly Picnic Shelter.
The park had been under construction since the spring of 2012 and had been closed to the public since last fall.

America’s night out against crime, National Night Out (NNO) is less than two weeks away and the city of New Brighton is expecting another high turnout in community celebrations for the 30th anniversary of the event.
NNO will take place across most of the country on Tuesday, Aug. 6, beginning at 6 p.m.
Last year the city had 147 organized block parties with over 10,000 residents -- nearly half the city’s population -- who participated in NNO.

The Ramsey County Board of Commissioners voted Tuesday to introduce a $10 “wheelage” tax to improve the county’s ailing roads.
The $10 per-vehicle charge, added onto license plate tab fees, will bring in an estimated $3.8 million dollars to fund major construction projects, according to a statement from the county.
Jim Tolaas, director of the county Public Works department, called the new funds “a major infusion that will actually make a meaningful difference that people will be able to see.”
