Arguably the most attractive urban space in the city of Saint Paul. The park is quaint and is flanked by the beautiful Landmark Center, the impressive George Latimer Public Library, the historic Saint Paul Hotel and the fabulous Ordway Performing Arts Center. There are several great nearby restaurants. The area is especially stunning during Christmas when decorations are on display and the outdoor skating rink is in operation.

On my very quick visit to MN I came across this park, whipped out my trusty smart phone and quickly understood why that cartoon character was so prominent - super snowy and cold - and decorated for Christmas so so pretty it was lovely. With the Landmark and Library at opposite ends of the park it reminded me of Brugge....strange but true.

This is a beautiful small park in downtown St. Paul that severs as an entryway to the library, the Landmark Center, and the Ordway Theatre. It is particularly pretty during the holidays, the winter carnival and spring/fall (trees). Many people also visit to see the Peanuts comic statues scattered throughout this area of Charles Schultz's hometown.

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

While this is a cute little park, it is not a destination spot. Should only be part of visiting other things in the area.

Surrounded by the Landmark Center and the historic library, this open space is inviting and a great place for wedding photos.

This park and area made my heart so happy! Chuck Shulz was born and raised in St. Paul, so you get to see statues of The Peanuts around the parks (incredibly nostalgic). The upkeep of the flowers, fountains and grounds are in great shape! Definitely worth the stop!

Adorable little park. Especially loved the fountain and the statues of the Peanuts gang characters. Nice walk if you're downtown.

Rice Park is a small park between the Landmark Center and the library. There is a statue of F. Scott Fitzgerald in one corner. Also a couple statues of the Peanuts gang around the park. Marcie reading a book on a banch while Peppermint Patty kicks a ball.

This fun event draws huge crowds. There are events centered around Rice Park in dt Saint Paul and spread out through the cities. The Fairgrounds have snow sculptures, Como Park has the Conservatory and outdoor snow events. There are Klondike Kate’s, Snow Royalty for all age groups, ice sculptures, ice skate rinks dt, food/libations, and many other cultural events. There are two parades held. The torchlight and a Saturday parade. There are Vulcans fighting for winter. Very fun watching. They have a dog and hootch bar plus the Cat Show of 200 breeds. It goes on for two weeks.

where is the most convenient parking?
I usually park in the ramp next to the Saint Paul Hotel which is right on the park, but when there are a lot of events such as during the winter carnival you would have to go further from Rice Park to find someplace. There are many parking ramps in the downtown area so I wish you luck.
