Beautiful park in the heart of the city

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!

We love stopping by here when in St Paul. It is quiet and beautiful. There are several restaurants near by that are great too. We took family photos here last year and it was a perfect spot. It is really a great place to bring our family.

There is often music in the park, and the park itself is just beautiful. It sits right in the heart of lowertown, and is right by the farmer's market. A fun place to sit and have lunch and return in the evening to listen to live music.

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.). Bring a blanket and a picnic, or pick something up from a nearby restaurant or one of the... More

This is a gem of St. Paul. There are gardens tended by local residents and jazz on Thursdays during the summer. There is also a small stream that runs through the middle of the park. It ismsurrounded by a few really nice places to eat or drink, the Bull Dog for example which has an incredible assortment of beer. Nice... More

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.
