Brandon Collins

Brandon Collins joined the Saint Paul Parks Conservancy Board of Directors in January 2018.  Originally from Bismarck North Dakota he moved to the cities in 2012.

Brandon is a graduate of the University of North Dakota with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration.  Brandon currently works for a local not for profit Credit Union as a mortgage loan officer.  He is also a volunteer ambassador for the Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce and frequently helps build homes with the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.

When asked what his favorite park was Brandon said “there are so many great parks in Saint Paul it’s hard to just pick one. I could easily say Raspberry Island which is my wife’s favorite, it is also where I proposed to her. However, personally I really enjoy the Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary. The fact that you can be near the action in downtown Saint Paul and a few steps later feel like you are in the wilderness is great amenity for our community.”

Parks do something more for our communities than provide a place to play with your kids or read a book or eat a quick lunch on your break.  Parks are important because they provide a space for communities to grow and thrive.

Wise words from Saint Paul Parks and Recreation for #wellnesdwednesdayYou know the saying “we can do hard things?” While that’s true, you can also give yourself a break sometimes. It’s cold outside. Don’t go out there if you don’t want to. While we know bundling up and getting fresh air is important, this isn’t a competition or survival of the fittest. This week, do something your heart wants. Be gentle on yourself. Give yourself grace. Take a break with a warm beverage. You’ve survived all the days leading up to today, and we think that’s worth celebrating.

🖼️: A half drank cup of chai in a mug that says “survivor” on it. It’s being held by a brown hand wearing a well worn light gray sweatshirt purchased at a thrift store in 2002.
