Western Park Planting

Early this fall, Public Art Saint Paul partnered with Saint Paul Parks and Recreation and Summit University Planning Council, to sponsor a community planting to beautify Western Park. Enthusiastic volunteers of all ages, dug into the fun - planting, watering and mulching the gardens in preparation for the winter months.

We were happy to get everything planted before the freeze and hope that you have a chance to take an autumnal walk through the park to enjoy the hard work of our volunteers before the winter. Next spring, we will be looking for volunteer gardeners to help care for, weed and water designated garden plots. If you would like to be added as a volunteer gardener, please contact

A very special thanks to Karl and Mark from Saint Paul Parks and Recreation; Irna and Lisa from Summit-University Planning Council and all of our dedicated young artists from the Western Park neighborhood!
