Rice Park is absolutely breathtaking during Christmas time. The park illuminates Christmas lights and trees that are beautiful. Great photo opportunities to be found. I highly recommend if you are in the area, to take a walk through a truly splendid Christmas event.

So many memories of Rice Park over the years. Surrounded by history and yet bustling with the activity of modern life. It's transformed to a wonderland in the wintertime and bursting with vibrant color year round.

Beautiful in the winter. Features ice sculptures during the Winter Carnival and sometimes at other times. The best night view is from the upper level inside the adjacent Ordway.

I enjoy getting food for lunch and sitting at Rice Park. The fountain is pretty and there is usually a bench free to sit on.

Food is expensive in Saint Paul, especially downtown, so I decided to check out the life-size Fitzgerald statue in Rice Park and get lunch from one of the food trucks and carts that rim the park. For six bucks I had a great little polish...More

The wife and I always come here to walk around and play Pokemon go. Much busier during the day, but always nice and slow at night.

A small Park within the heart of Saint Paul; the Park mainly serves as a conduit for the foot traffic of local businesses. One outstanding feature is the statue of F. Scott Fitzgerald, one of the most troubled, but gifted writers of the 20th century....More
