Living in St. Paul Park
St. Paul Park is of course also conveniently situated along the eastern shore of the Mississippi River, allowing the city to also offer a few waterfront parks and a small marina that locals use to access the river. And speaking of parks, St. Paul Park is actually full of fabulous public park and green spaces, something the city is proud to offer those who call this area home.
St. Paul Park is home to the fairly large St. Paul Park Refinery, which is where many local residents are employed. But given its close proximity to both St. Paul and Minneapolis, St. Paul Park is a great place to live for basically any commuter to the Twin Cities, helping make it one of the more convenient locations to live in the Greater Twin Cities metropolitan area. Highway 10 can have you to the city in matter of minutes, giving home owners here access to all sorts of Twin Cities attractions, including Mall of America, which is only a quick 15 minute drive away.
