The land is owned by three (3) parties (MN Dot, DNR, North St Paul). In 2012 was turned over to the City of North St Paul for the specific use of building our Rotary Park. The move was driven by the lands location right on the Gateway Trail, approximately mid-way between St Paul and Stillwater. This makes the location a perfect spot to either rest or use as a destination. The trail usage has continued to grow to well over 300,000+ hikers, bikers, and runners annually.
The park was planned and built out through a partnership between the City of North St Paul and the Rotary Club of North St Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale.
Facilities include: 31 car parking lot, rain garden, a drinking fountain, 8 park benches, 2 bike racks, 2 shelters with picnic tables, 3 flag poles, Little Free Library, a bike repair station, a monument, and restrooms. The last of these projects to be completed were the permanent restroom facilities for both women and men, replacing the unisex port-a-potty.
