Fun place to take pictures. Good place to take the kids to climb on. Nice location and view of the Mississippi River.

Unable to park near the Green Chair. There is construction work on the road by the Green Chair. We saw someone struggling to climb onto the chair so we basically saw the chair and left. Not worth our time.

We were not able to get to it due to construction blocking the only way to get to it. I was very disappointed that I couldn’t see it.

I always try to find something "different" to see when we're traveling, and I happened to find this not far off our route while in the Twin Cities. The kids had fun climbing on it, and it was worth the few minutes we spent there....More

Amusing, whimsical touch at one end of the Smith Ave High Bridge. The bridge itself is worth at trip to see St Paul from across the Mississippi!

We had a lot of fun climbing and posing at the Large Green Chair. The climbing is a bit harder than I had thought due to my height. It is about 20 minutes walk from Rice Park.

Love the Big Green Chair in St. Paul but damn kids have written vulgar graffiti all over this big beautiful piece. I get so angry when people deface public property of any kind. Rude bull shirt... still neat to see and a good photo op...More

Was hard to find. There was no parking lot. Literally spent 2 minutes there. Pass on this, you'll thank me.

I like quirky, random, fun things, but this was a disappointment. It was hard to get here for starters. Then when we got there we said, "That's it?" Parking was difficult as it was off road and there was a lot of traffic going by,...More

Huge chair. My kids had a lot of fun taking lots of pictures. It was unique! Worth exploring the park that is beside the nice bridge.
