The deep river gorge that runs through the city of Saint Paul is a natural wonder filled with scenic parks and green spaces, considered among the best park systems in the country by the Trust for Public Land. A new map produced by downtown businesses promotes picnics as a memorable way to enjoy the extraordinary views from the bluff top or on the water.
