Phalen Regional Park
This gorgeous park and the lake it surrounds are a staple of the East Side. It’s a place we go to bike, skate, walk, jog, sail, canoe, fish and golf -- a place to have fun. The regional park is also a great spot to catch a free concert, peruse charming sculptures and wander through beautiful flower gardens. Many improvements have been made to the area in recent years, like the restoration of its stone arch bridge, and more are on the way -- St. Paul Parks and Recreation is repairing the old waterfall later this summer. The park is a true gem, a place for all East Siders.
