"Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board: George Floyd Square" sign

Title

"Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board: George Floyd Square" sign

Coverage

3800 Chicago Avenue, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55407

Description

The Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board (MPRB) identifies parks and other destinations (i.e. lakes, trails, parkways, gardens, etc.) with permanent signage: wooden, rectangular, and painted with black, neutral, green and white colors. All permanent MPRB signage share this consistent stylization.

This MPRB sign has been removed from another location and placed at the intersection of 38th and Chicago Avenue. The peeling at the end of the sign suggests that it has been edited from its original location name to now read: "George Floyd Square".

Source

The location in which George Floyd was murdered by the Minneapolis Police Department has since been transformed into a memorial. The zone, regarded as "George Floyd Square," is filled with memorial tributes to Floyd. Residents from the neighborhood maintain that the streets remain barricaded off in order to protect the area from traffic.
