  • I love downtown St Paul we have the landmark center,the St Paul hotel the library in one beautifully Designed area...it all surrounding the what I thought beautiful rice park. It was until I get there and there are unruly people sleeping on benches consuming alcoholic beverages not to mention the use of illegal drugs and transactions of illegal drugs. It has its share of something. To your Liking's or not its still beautiful its just life as we see it.
  • One of the best Ingress and Pokemon's spots in Minnesota in general and from what I hear the United States. It's a beautiful Park well maintained plugins if you need them. There's always a bunch of people and a hot dog stand if you need something to munch and depending on the day some food trucks. On some Fridays you also can get some great jazz music depending the season. I have to admit this park is lovely water fountains 2 people in all kinds of businesses around you the place is great!
  • Rice park has been a hot stop lately for the Pokemon Go players. It is a small park between the Ordway Theater, the St Paul Hotel and the Landmark Center. It of host a lot of concerts in the summer months and lunch time there are a verity of food truck that come by. Check it out if you can it is a nice spot.
  • Pretty park in the middle of a beautiful St Paul. Gaze at the architecture, watch the fountain (warm months only) or people watch. It's a great spot to be, especially in the summer.
  • Very nice park in the middle of downtown Saint Paul with a beautiful water monument. Right in front of the library and gorgeous Saint Paul Hotel, this park is a great Pokemon spot as well. It can get a little dirty at times from some of the homeless, and sometimes bad crowds of them can congregate there to fight and whatnot.
