I came across this park accidentally after visiting a friend who lives nearby. It's a beautiful park, with awesome views overlooking the river and city, and has benches to sit and relax, etc., and a nice play area for children.

I grew up in this area. My opinion, this park offers the best view of St. Paul! The skyline, the great Mississippi River , the St. Paul Airport. The history of the Indian burial mounds holds much to th imaginationn. There is even an actual underground drinking spring. A natural. But you must know the history to lovage!

Located in one of the most historic districts of Saint Paul, Indian's Mound Park atop Dayton's Bluff first-and-foremost allows you to see the best available views of the downtown skyline and Mississippi River.

For a picnic for groups of 20 or more try this site. It has just one main facility for comfort. Worth the ride up to the park.

This has been my family park since 1886 (not typo.) Great place to explore the woods, have reunions and go for a quiet walk, watch The River traffic or hang out. Don't forget the dog.

We used to live there so we would often go there just to relax. Great view of downtown St. Paul, the Mississippi river, and the airport.

I love this park - it is peaceful and lovely. It is also impeccably maintained. I enjoy walking to clear my head. Offers a great view of both downtowns. I love the way they have signage that explains the historic significance.

The area is pretty and has a bike trail. If you are expecting to see a lot of history it isn't the place to go. If you want to go on a nice bike trail head there. A couple of mounds are the Indial burial grounds. Do watch that you are heading the correct way on the trails as people... More
