Highland Park

 

Welcome to Highland Park

Highland Park is situated in the southwest corner of St. Paul, MN. It lies along the Mississippi River north of Fort Snelling, and across the river from the Minneapolis/ St. Paul international airport. It’s population is nearly 25,000. It contains a mix of older, well maintained houses, retail and some light industrial buildings.

Then and Now:

St. Paul acquired Highland Park in 1925 thanks to Herman Wenzel, the commissioner of Parks at the time. While it was undeveloped at the time, within 7 years a 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, football and baseball grounds, and a picnic area were built. A sports stadium with seating for nearly 3,000 people, as well as a new clubhouse & reception facility were also boasting points for Highland.  Most facilities, while possibly rebuilt or renovated, are still standing today!

Hidden Falls Regional Park is located at 1415 Mississippi River Blvd S in St. Paul, MN 55116.

Horace Cleveland selected Hidden Falls as one of 4 origninal park areas for St. Paul. He helped make the park accessible for all people to enjoy, not just the wealthy. It is separated from Crosby Farm Park by the Watergate Marina, but connected to it via the trail system. Enjoy the bicycling and walking trails, bonfire rings, horseshoe pits, boat launch and views of the falls.

Crosby Farm Regional Park is located at 2595  Crosby Farm Road, St. Paul, MN 55116

Thomas Crosby owned a 160 acre farm from 1858 until his death in 1886. This was the longest and largest running farm in Highland Park. It continued to be farmed until the 1960’s. It was then obtained by the St. Paul Port Authority and leased to the City as a park.

It boasts 736 acres and is the largest park in St. Paul. It contains 6.7 miles of paved trails and connects to Fort Snelling State Park. Picnic shelters, firepits, horsehoes, fishing and a boat launch make it an ideal place to spend a day.

Highland National Golf Course

One of Highland’s claims to fame is its 18-hole par 72 course with a 71.2 rating. The signature 15th hole features a large “Snoopy” shaped bunker constructed with permission of Mrs. Jean Schulz, in honor of her late husband Charles Schulz, who learned to play golf here at Highland. The famous bunker was featured in Golf Digest in August of 2015 in this article: http://www.golfdigest.com/story/this-is-the-nicest-bunker-refe
