Amusing, whimsical touch at one end of the Smith Ave High Bridge. The bridge itself is worth at trip to see St Paul from across the Mississippi!

We had a lot of fun climbing and posing at the Large Green Chair. The climbing is a bit harder than I had thought due to my height. It is about 20 minutes walk from Rice Park.

Love the Big Green Chair in St. Paul but damn kids have written vulgar graffiti all over this big beautiful piece. I get so angry when people deface public property of any kind. Rude bull shirt... still neat to see and a good photo op...More

Huge chair. My kids had a lot of fun taking lots of pictures. It was unique! Worth exploring the park that is beside the nice bridge.

Large green chair. Not much else. It's at the north end east side of the high bridge (smith avenue).

Big green chair is a must see, only takes about 5 minutes, but it's fun and a local spot. Get a fun pic and be on your way, very close to downtown.
