Three capital projects will transform Saint Paul’s riverfront into centers of river-oriented activity that provide diverse, authentic landscapes and experiences.


Mississippi River Learning Center

The gateway to the Mississippi River, welcoming residents and visitors to this national feature with four-season programming that honors, promotes stewardship of, and teaches the culture, history and ecology of the river.


River Balcony

A 1.5-mile promenade that extends along Downtown Saint Paul’s signature Mississippi River Bluff and down to the river. The Balcony transforms urban infrastructure into public space that connects parks, civic landmarks and private development the length of Kellogg Boulevard.


East Side River District

A dynamic urban landscape where historically incompatible uses can comfortably coexist and:

  • Reveal the complex systems and stories of the area
  • Heal a compromised landscape
  • Connect to and throughout the area
  • Protect sacred and significant Dakota sites
