Wacouta Commons Park

 

Neighborhoods: Downtown

Amount Needed: $700,000 (estimate)

Project Partners: Friends of Wacouta Commons Park, City of Saint Paul Parks and Recreation

One of downtown Saint Paul’s “pocket parks” is Wacouta Commons Park, nestled between the Sibley Park Apartments and St. Mary’s Catholic Church. This block-length oasis stretches from Eighth to Ninth streets and from Sibley to Wacouta streets.  The volunteer Friends of Wacouta Commons Park has raised money to improve the playground and to plant 14 overstory trees.

This park in downtown’s newest neighborhood is the “back yard” for both high-end condos and affordable housing home to many immigrant families with young children. With the river more than a 10-min walk away and only private indoor pools nearby, a splash pad is a critical next step to give families easy, free recreational water access in the urban core.

The Saint Paul Parks Conservancy
is a 501(c)(3) organization.
