St Louis Park Community Information

Residents of St. Louis Park never run short of things to do as there are a number of parks, trails, and community events that keep them busy for days on end. In terms of parks, the Westwood Hills Nature Center offers environmental programs, an interpretive center, trails, picnic areas and a lake. Minnehaha Creek meanders through the city, and there are miles of trails in and around St. Louis Park that wind through meadows, prairies, ponds and lakes. Many trails even connect residential areas to schools and shopping districts. A bike trail links St. Louis Park to downtown Minneapolis. The ponds provide places to fish and canoe and come winter, some ponds are converted into outdoor skating rinks complete with warming huts. Other winter sports residents enjoy include snowmobiling, sledding, cross-country skiing and ice fishing. Community events include the Kite Fly, music festivals, an ice cream social, a train show, Halloween parties and concerts, holiday themed art classes, art expos, paper airplane toss, parades and a fireworks display.

Just a short drive from St. Louis Park is the Twin Cities. More than 40 million visitors come to the Minneapolis-St. Paul area each year, many to visit the Mall of America in nearby Bloomington. The Mall covers 78 acres and includes shopping, restaurants, nightclubs, the LEGO Imagination Center, Cereal Adventure sponsored by General Mills, an indoor simulated speedway and a movie theatre complex. Also inside the Mall is Underwater Adventures. This walk-through aquarium is home to over 3000 sea creatures. Tanks allow visitors to touch sharks and stingrays and a virtual submarine ride offers a look into the mysterious sea.

Minneapolis is a modern city with skyscrapers, including the 57-story IDS building which has become a symbol of the industrial and corporate strength of the city. St. Paul, the capital of Minnesota, harkens to days gone by with its brick and stone buildings. The State Capitol and St. Paulís Cathedral are also great sites to see.
