No matter what time of year it is, rain, snow or shine, there's usually something going on in this park. If nothing else, a great place to people watch. There are business people, artists, students, tourists, lovers, vendors, dog walkers, bicyclists, etc. Some of them...More

This is another beautiful green space downtown St. Paul! A great place to stroll in the summer fall and spring. As for winter, it is decorated gorgeously with ice sculptors and lights that are simply breathtaking!!

A gathering and stopping place, home to the Winter Carnival Ice Sculptures, surrounded by attractions, fountain, green space, food trucks, and older than Central Park in NY. A good locator and meeting spot.

We found the bronze statues of the Peanuts characters. There were very large so perfect for picture taking. The park itself had a bit of construction going on but didn't hurt the views. We walked around hoping to find a shop that sold Peanuts memorabilia,...More

Pretty park but not that large. Lovely to take a quick jaunt through and convenient to other parts of the city.

I always enjoy walking through Rice Park before a hockey game or event at the Xcel. Some times- Ice Sculptures, other times the fountain is going! Beautiful Christmas tree at Christmas!

Great idea for a sunny cold Sunday. Not only for kids! Nice location in the middle of downtown. No problem with finding parking around, close by.
