  • Was surprised to learn there were such large mounds within this city park and so close to downtown St. Paul. The mounds are fenced in to protect them. There are great views of the Mississippi, barges ...  more »

  • Aside from the occasional shooting, it is a great park to bring the kids. If you start to see numerous unsavory characters milling about and rowdy, I would suggest packing up and heading home. Aside from that, there is a great playground and awesome views of the Mississippi River valley from the bluff. And hey, don't dwell too much on the unsavory element and homicides...diversity is a good thing!
  • Lovely park with an interesting group of people that you sometimes see at the end of the day on a summer night. Other than that there are very good views of the city of Saint Paul and is a nice place to just "let go" for a few minutes. Also fun to see the fireworks on the 4th. :)
  • Such a beautiful park. A lot of culture and history reside here. Take some time and see what it's got to offer.
  • Took a nice walk. Loved it!
  • Beautiful park with plenty of scenic views and winding trails. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the space, and the history of the space is interesting for new visitors. The only reason this is not a 5 star review is the quality of the trails - they aren't really maintained that well, and tend to be in pretty rough shape. I would also not recommend coming to this park after dark - it is perfectly fine during the day though.

Where to stay in Saint Paul

Places to stay in St. Paul sit concentrated in the downtown area. The Lowertown Historic District, which includes some of the city's oldest buildings, makes a particularly attractive option. Hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts here can put you just steps from the Mississippi River, while the greater downtown area also offers apartment rentals and hostels. Staying downtown also puts you within walking distance of most of the city's prime attractions. Additionally, you'll find a handful of national-chain hotels on the east side of town near Interstate 494 / 694.
