West Saint Paul’s Very Own…

By Mystatelove @mystatelove

**In the very first post of MN Blog I said that you could expect to read anything and everything on here. Don’t say I didn’t warn you… :)

Last night Joe and I went walking through the Summit Hill neighborhood in Saint Paul with Stella who had a lot of energy to burn. It’s nice to get our of our own neighborhood to explore and look at other houses every once in a while. Plus, the houses over there are awesome – old, huge and full of character. They just don’t make houses like they used to. Sigh. If you’re feeling adventurous you can go on the Summit Hill Neighborhood Walking tour. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and you can go at your own pace! Anyway, I’m not sure what prompted Joe to look it up when we got home (maybe it was the park we crossed that happened to be in the middle of a turnabout) but he googled “smallest parks in the US” and came across something VERY close to home.

Did you know West Saint Paul is home to the smallest dedicated park in the US of A?! Well, I take that back. It is technically now the second (Portland holds the smallest) but it may still be considered the smallest with it’s own monument. You can read the article Joe found here.  The funny thing about the park is that we have driven by it so many times because it’s not far from our house!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, Albert Park. Oh yea, look at that beaut!

The park made it on Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Well, now that I’ve seen it, I’m a believer!

Stella and I spent some time laying in the grass while we were there. Nothing like enjoying a park in the middle of a busy intersection!

So there you have it. One of the smallest parks in the United States and it’s right here in our backyard. At this point you may be wondering what else West Saint Paul has to offer. Well wonder no more my friends. All you have to do is watch this gem of a video we found on YouTube awhile back: West St Paul. Enjoy!
