Pretty Park

Pretty park in the middle of downtown Saint Paul. Fun to go to music in the park I think usually on Fridays. Restaurants close by.

If you dont mind the occasional body asleep this park represents an oasis in the middle of a busy city. Great food trucks at lunch time, and a gentle stream pumping through it in the summer.

Small little park with a big presence in Lowertown, Saint Paul. Thursday nights are the best - free concerts (and not just a guitar player - they feature the best in the midwest if you love jazz, blues, alt country, roots, etc.).

A lush green space in the midst of downtown. The landscape is beautiful with well tended plants and a trickle of a stream as well! This can be a very busy happening spot with music and concerts depending on the day or just a lovely place to take a rest or a walk.

Great park for a stroll, especially when it is all lit up in the evening. Grab some popcorn at Candyland and walk with your sweetie! :)

A great little oasis downtown. I like to go here for lunch sometimes, as there's usually a couple of food trucks.

We're there every Thursday in the summer for an ever changing line up of great music in the park! There are merchandise vendors, beer and wine and food trucks. Bring your own chair or blanket, a picnic basket and enjoy some great Saint Paul summer fun!
