Nice location close to the waterfront surrounded by many restaurant and businesses to get a drink or shopping fix.

Rice park used to be pretty run down. Not a place someone would want to take a walk or go to sit to enjoy the sunshine. They just redid it though and it is incredible! My daughter and I go there about once a week to go to the fountain, grab something at a food truck, or just sit and enjoy the nice weather. It's by far one of the best parks in Saint Paul now. Great work city of Saint Paul!
Love this place. When I lived in the Cities, I came often. Fantastic library. Always try to visit whenever I'm back in the neighbourhood. Love the sculptures and the fountain. Super sweet this time, the dancing, celebratory woman is dressed in flowers, head to toe!
