Parking and access changes will take effect during the week of May 22

Blaine, Minn. (May 16, 2017) – Back in February it was announced that the Spring Lake Park Schools would be building a new preK-4 elementary school on the campus of the National Sports Center (NSC) campus in Blaine, near the intersection of Davenport St. NE and 105th Ave. NE.

The district is purchasing 11 acres from the State of Minnesota, but the total school site will be approximately 25 acres including adjacent fields that will be available for shared use by Spring Lake Park students and existing NSC programs, tournaments, and field rentals.

The exact location of the school will be at the west end of the Main Parking Lot, just north of the NSC Velodrome, with vehicle and bus access off Davenport St. NE. Over 600 students are expected to be served by the school. The school will open in the fall of 2018.

After securing city approval, the school district will begin construction during the week of May 22. During the construction phase, starting May 22, there will be some significant changes to traffic access and parking on the NSC campus.
