  • We wandered down there fairly early on a Sunday morning. On a side note - downtown St. Paul is a ghost town on Sunday morning; almost creepy.... Anyway, this park sounded delightful in the article I r...  more »

  • A lovely park in downtown St.Paul. During summer months there are free concerts on Thursday nights. People bring chairs, some sit on the ground on blankets. Also there are Rocks and short walls to sit...  more »

  • Beautiful park that's very well maintained. Other reviews exaggerate the homeless presence, most of the homeless who take shelter in the park are very kind individuals looking for somewhere dry to stay. I live right on the park and it's a great place to walk my dog, grab a bit from food trucks, or simply sit in the grass and enjoy the weekly music in the summer.
  • A delightful green retreat in the city. Its size is one square block. It has big trees, a man-made stream, nice flowers and many events in the summer--often with food trucks. It's a common place for wedding photos and engagement photos too.
  • It's a beautiful little place with artificial creeks and a nice place to walk your dog. But the homeless and the Cannabis smoking really brings this place down and makes it a not-so-family friendly place. Has a lot of potential but more Police precense would help.
  • Love the landscaping. Great escape during the workday. Always look forward to all the live music events!
  • Awesome oasis in downtown St. Paul, near a ton of unique places, featuring well-kept gardens, including a babbling creek. Music in Mears every Thursday during the summer provides a great night of free entertainment.

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.
