Here at ALTAI™, we don’t just make great boots. We also have a passion for hiking, camping, and all things outdoors. We are on a mission to check out as many local nature destinations as possible, and we were eager to check Rice Park off our list. Rice Park is a park in the Twin Cities that beautifully blends an urban setting with mother nature. Located in downtown St. Paul, Rice Park is near the Mississippi River and is host to a ton of awesome events year-round including concerts, festivals, and a skating rink in the winter.
We were there on a sunny winter afternoon and had a great time walking over to the Mississippi and checking out the scene. The high bridge spanning the river is also a particularly impressive view. Since Charles Schultz, the creator of Peanuts, is originally from St. Paul, there are statues of Peanuts characters located in various locations around the Twin Cities. They can also be found at Rice Park. Rice Park is a great outdoor destination for Twin Cities residents and visitors alike—whether you’re there to enjoy a local band in the summer, or to go ice skating in the winter.
