YOU ARE NEEDED TO KEEP SAINT PAUL’S PARKS
GREAT FOR ALL FAMILIES
Parks are essential for family and cultural life.
Saint Paul is home to one of the country’s most celebrated park systems. With 179 parks and nearly 5000 acres of parkland, your partnership is essential to keeping our parks great.
The Coronavirus pandemic has certainly shown us all that we need our parks more than ever. Across the nation, cities like Saint Paul are experiencing as much as a 185% increase in the use of their parks due to the pandemic.
But not every park offers what St Paul families need. With the help of friends like you, the Conservancy is working to improve parks like these:
- Swede Hollow (East Side) – greater park access, increased visibility and sense of security, better gathering space, and historical/cultural interpretation.
- Margaret Park (East Side) and Wacouta Commons Park (downtown) – splash pads to bring much-needed recreational water to families during hot summers.
- Frogtown Community Center (University Ave) – a green roof will add outdoor recreation and fitness space with surprising views over the city.
- Hamm Plaza (downtown) – building on the successful revitalization of Rice Park, this concrete structure will be more accessible, usable and green to bring joy to downtown workers, residents and visitors.
With every landscape revived, water feature built and gathering space created, you make this city's neighborhoods and families stronger.
