Gabrielle enjoys running and biking on the trails in Minneapolis as much as she can. Most of her free time these days is spent chasing her kids around the neighborhood parks and playgrounds.

Gabrielle Grinde ASLA, PLA (MN)

Vice President

Gabrielle has conducted park and recreation system planning, park and trail master planning, and designed park, trail, and site improvements for clients throughout the state of Minnesota as well as for communities in Wisconsin and Iowa. She has been involved in planning efforts for Dakota County’s innovative greenway network since its inception, and she has also helped numerous clients in greater Minnesota plan and develop their regional park and trail facilities.

Gabrielle’s ability to engage with stakeholders has been a key element in her professional success.  She is able to work with staff and stakeholders to develop a broad vision for the community’s future, but she is also able to work with community members to develop creative solutions to more specific planning and design challenges.
