At the heart of downtown St. Paul’s Lowertown district is beautiful Mears Park, which hosts concerts, recreational events and festivals all year.

Summer brings patio dining to countless local restaurants, baseball games at CHS Field, and visits to the Como Zoo and Conservatory, which is next door to the Como Town amusement park.

Winter has its fair share of events as well, and for those willing to brave the cold, it’s worth the trouble.  Bundle up to enjoy ice skating and sledding, a yearly winter carnival and the Red Bull Crashed Ice World Championships. No matter what your interests or your budget might be, downtown St. Paul really does seem to have something for everyone.
