I try to stop by as often as I can, especially during weekdays when the food trucks are there. It is well-kept and regularly patrolled. Easy to get to from the light rail.

We wandered down there fairly early on a Sunday morning. On a side note - downtown St. Paul is a ghost town on Sunday morning; almost creepy.... Anyway, this park sounded delightful in the article I read that morning in one of those tourist magazine's...More

The park is beautiful with a little stream and many gardens cared for by different groups of people. We went here for the food truck festival which was a lot of fun.

A lovely park in downtown St.Paul. During summer months there are free concerts on Thursday nights. People bring chairs, some sit on the ground on blankets. Also there are Rocks and short walls to sit on. Food trucks surround the Park. Many options for food...More

Amazing number of food trucks here! The only downside is that they are all selling full size proportions. I would prefer small servings so I could enjoy more of the offerings.

This little gem is the heart of Lowertown. Filled with trees and beautifully maintained flower beds, a boulder-lined stream, a performance shell and plaza, this is a happening place. The mornings are for a quick walk, quiet reflection, and the occasional exercise class. At noon,...More

We spent some time here during the recent St. Paul Art Crawl. It was a little chilly, but we walked through and looked at the tulips that were up. We all remember what it looked like in the 1970's with the stairs etc. It looks...More

Love dining and walking around Mears Park, especially in the winter. Trees are lit, people are caroling. In the summer you can usually see weekend wedding pics too. Fun place!
