Rice Park is a quaint little park right downtown. Its a nice place to just sit and relax. And the history surrounding it is beautiful. You have the old Central Library Building, the Landmark Center, the Ordway Theater, and the St. Paul Hotel all around you. During the Winter Carnival, Rice Park hosts the ice sculptor contest among other things.

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.

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.

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.
