Standing anywhere in Rice Park allows you to truly be at the center of Old Saint Paul. From the Central Library to The St. Paul Hotel to the Hamm's Building and the Landmark Center, and with the Cathedral in sight up the hill, you're surrounded by decades of history and culture. Heck, even the Ordway Center, Herb Brooks Statue, and... More

The Winter Carnival is different every year. If you are expecting a large ice castle, you may be disappointed. Plan on going and enjoying whatever is present. The amount and depth of ice sculptures changed from Saturday morning to Sunday morning, and Saturday night with the lights gave yet another dimension to the sculptures. This was punctuated

We stopped by here to see what the Winter Carnival was all about. While the park isn't very big, there was a lot to see. Worth checking out!

You can connect the park to a walk in the downtown Saint Paul skyway at either end of the park. Try the connection at the Excel Energy Center and walk down the tunnel to the library, making the trip worth while.

Rice Park has a beautiful tree all lit up at Christmas time, and all of the other trees are lit as well. It's just a magical place around Christmas, and is surrounded by the Ordway, James J Hill Library, St Paul Hotel and Landmark Center.

We went here to see the lights and the Christmas tree. The park was significantly smaller than we expected. The lights were also pretty lackluster as they were all the same color.

Rice Park is beautifully decorated for the holiday season with lots of lights and one blue tree. Peaceful park located in the center of Landmark Center, Ordway and St. Paul Hotel.

The Christmas lights are truly beautiful and the ice rink is free. It's a smaller park than I expected, but still a good time!
