The Winter Carnival is different every year. If you are expecting a large ice castle, you may be disappointed. Plan on going and enjoying whatever is present. The amount and depth of ice sculptures changed from Saturday morning to Sunday morning, and Saturday night with the lights gave yet another dimension to the sculptures. This was punctuated

We stopped by here to see what the Winter Carnival was all about. While the park isn't very big, there was a lot to see. Worth checking out!

You can connect the park to a walk in the downtown Saint Paul skyway at either end of the park. Try the connection at the Excel Energy Center and walk down the tunnel to the library, making the trip worth while.

Rice Park has a beautiful tree all lit up at Christmas time, and all of the other trees are lit as well. It's just a magical place around Christmas, and is surrounded by the Ordway, James J Hill Library, St Paul Hotel and Landmark Center.

We went here to see the lights and the Christmas tree. The park was significantly smaller than we expected. The lights were also pretty lackluster as they were all the same color. It would've been better if I came in with different expectations, but I was expecting something larger like Como. But I will say that there were some cool... More

Rice Park is beautifully decorated for the holiday season with lots of lights and one blue tree. Peaceful park located in the center of Landmark Center, Ordway and St. Paul Hotel.

The Christmas lights are truly beautiful and the ice rink is free. It's a smaller park than I expected, but still a good time!

Check out Rice and Landmark Parks in St. Paul, Mn. As you may know, Charles Schultz, the cartoonist responsible for the creation of "Peanuts" was from St. Paul, Mn. So to honor him, the city has put up bronze statues of the different characters. They are terrific likenesses. They are nice to see and a good introduction for small children... More

There isn't too much to say about this park. It has some great views of amazing architecture. It's right downtown with plenty of nearby food options. The weekends consistently have events happening. I would not plan a trip around visiting it, but if you're already nearby, it's a nice park to take a break.
