As a former resident of St Paul I’ve seen the landing pad many times. It’s worth a visit if you’re in town. Not sure it’s ever been used but there’s always a first time. Was a Canada Centenial project that lives on.

Dont go out of your way to see this. It was alright considering I was already in town but definitely not worth the drive.

I was here years ago when Mother Theresa came to town, so had seen it before, but was very happy with the woman in the gift shop. I needed information about several things around town---restaurants, veterinarian. She was very helpful.

This monument was erected in the town to celebrate the 1967 centennial. It has great 60s styling with updated additions. The steps and the pad (with flags behind) give a great backdrop for group photos. It's a fun, easy accessible small town monument! The gift...More
