“Holiday Lights are spectacular!”
Review of Rice Park

Rice Park
Ranked #28 of 108 things to do in Saint Paul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 November 2017

We took the opportunity to enjoy an unseasonably warm evening and toured the well-lit park last night. It is close to the Ordway Performance Center and next to a skating rink that will be open to the public until mid-February. Parking is free on Sundays, but you might need to walk a couple blocks.

I enjoy getting food for lunch and sitting at Rice Park. The fountain is pretty and there is usually a bench free to sit on.

Benches, fountain and food trucks. Next door to the Landmark Center and on the bus lines.
They have activities all year round, and even music on weekdays.

Food is expensive in Saint Paul, especially downtown, so I decided to check out the life-size Fitzgerald statue in Rice Park and get lunch from one of the food trucks and carts that rim the park. For six bucks I had a great little polish sausage with onions and kraut and a bag of chips and drink, and there was plenty of seating around the fountain and additional statue that are the focal point of the park. There's nothing to do here except people watch and it's more like a European park than American green space, but it feels like a nice breath of fresh air if you've been walking the downtown to soak up the tourist sites.

The wife and I always come here to walk around and play Pokemon go. Much busier during the day, but always nice and slow at night.
