Donor Recognition


The Rice Park Revitalization Project is deeply grateful to the following individuals, corporations and foundations for their generosity. Their impactful support will lead to more green space and hardscape for events, additional and upgraded lighting, additional gardens and trees and a new irrigation system.

For years, Rice Park has served as a centerpiece for downtown Saint Paul, hosting daily visitors, weddings, special events and annual festivals that have made it a four season destination. New programming, including additional festivals and events, has provided more visitors to Rice Park than ever before.

We salute the following donors for their generous investments in a revitalized Rice Park.
