“Ice Sculptures”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Every January the St Paul Winter Carnival sponsors and Ice Carving Competition. We have frequently gone to Rice Park to see them. It is also close to Cosetta's Italian Restaurant and Market. A place not to miss.

“Truly Minnesotan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

After nearly half an hour looking for a parking spot, we made it to Rice Park as we strolled the streets of Minnesota’s Capital City. The park wasn’t too big, but the Peanuts Sculptures made it a truly Minnesotan experience for us. Nice place for a stroll, a few photo ops, and/or break on a stroll through the city.

“Great location, lots of urban wildlife”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

In between the landmark center, St Paul hotel and Ordway, this small urban park is home to frolicking frolicking squirrels, lots of pigeons and a lot of people hanging out and maybe even sleeping on the ground. The fountain of Minnehaha is the big draw and good for a photo. In the winter they have the ice sculptures there for the Winter carnival. Nice to walk through and keep moving or you might be solicited by people who are over from the homeless shelter a few blocks away.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Whether it's winter or summer, Rice Park has a lot to offer. It's right next door to the Ordway Theatre, and some of the best restaurants in St. Pau. Go ice skating in the winter, or sit by the fountains in the summer. I love it!
