For 100 years, the National Park Service has preserved America’s special places “for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.” Celebrate its second century with the Find Your Park GeoTour that launched April 2016 and explore these geocaches placed for you by National Park Service Rangers and their partners.
Upper Landing Park
Located on Shepard Road and Chestnut, this newly renovated park offers an intimate river setting for visitors looking to get away from the busy city situated on the bluffs above. The park features numerous seating areas along the Mississippi River, a public plaza for gatherings and a connection to the Mississippi River Trail. At the center of these renovations is the St. Paul City House (St. Paul Municipal Grain Terminal), which has been restored and converted into an interpretive center and event venue.
Activities: A bicycle/walking trail extends along the entire length of the park. The park also has seating areas and a plaza for gathering. The St. Paul City House offers interpretive signage with an event area that can accommodate 275 guests.
Hours: The park is open from dawn to dusk unless otherwise posted.
