Midway Peace Park
A new park in the Midway neighborhood of Saint Paul, at 416 Griggs Street between University Avenue and Saint Anthony Avenue, is the result of years of planning and collaboration led by the City of Saint Paul – Parks and Recreation Department and Trust for Public Land. Other partners include Union Park District Council, Gordon Parks High School, Hamline-Midway Coalition, Lexington-Hamline Community Council, CommonBond Communities, and many others. The park will be a destination along the Green Line and an important local park for the neighborhood, area schools, and residents of the adjacent Skyline Tower.
The new three acre park will provide a play area, walking path, green space, basketball court, a unique stormwater channel and two rain gardens. Capitol Region Watershed District (CRWD) joined park planning efforts in 2018 to help with the stormwater management design process.
