Vikings Given Green Light To Finalize Pregame Plans

After years of collaboration between the Minnesota Vikings, the city of Minneapolis and multiple local neighborhoods, tailgating has been approved for U.S. Bank Stadium.

Last week, the Minneapolis City Council approved the tailgating zone that now allows the Vikings to begin working with private lot owners in the vicinity of U.S. Bank Stadium to ensure ample tailgating opportunities for fans before home games.

With over $1 billion invested in the revitalization of Downtown East since the stadium's plans were approved, former tailgating lots have been lost. The new plan reconfigures the old zone so that 200 new spaces can be used.

In the coming weeks, the Vikings will announce their comprehensive tailgating plan.

Landscaper Adds Local Touches To U.S. Bank Stadium

The landscape at U.S. Bank Stadium joins the long list of stadium items that reflect the region and Nordic history.

Project landscape architect Tadd Kreun of Minneapolis-based Oslund and Associates told the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s Rochelle Olson that his team has "worked pretty heavily off a native palette of trees."

Working around the unique angles of the stadium, Kreun broke the surrounding area down into a series of zones that he said will be "linear spaces that you move through."

Work on the stadium's landscape began in the fall of 2015 and continues as the stadium's opening approaches. To view photos of the current landscape at U.S. Bank Stadium, click here.
