Reimagining Saint Paul’s unique perspective of the river. 

The River Balcony is a 1.5-mile promenade connecting a series of cohesive public spaces, civic landmarks and development sites along downtown Saint Paul’s river bluff, creating a vibrant riverfront and stimulating economic development in downtown Saint Paul. This project will enhance existing infrastructure and create new connections to and along the bluff and down to the river along Kellogg Boulevard between Eagle and Sibley streets.

The Great River Passage Conservancy is actively fundraising for schematic design of the proposed River Balcony.
