Assembly Union Park, 875 Mount Curve Blvd, St Paul, MN 55116
Saint Paul Parks are open from Sunrise to 11pm.

Assembly Union Park is a 1.55 acre park in Saint Paul’s Highland Bridge development that opened in July of 2023. The new park has family-friendly amenities that include a large play area, space to picnic, a basketball court and St. Paul’s first pickleball courts.

The park was named in recognition of the site’s industrial history and the people who worked at Ford Motor Company. It is one of four parks that make up the Highland Bridge Parks created out of 9 acres of the old Ford plant. The remaining approximately 100 acres of the former plant will contain privately-owned spaces designed for public use.

5 Ideas for Family Fun at Assembly Union Park

  1. Play on the Playground. The large play area covers nearly a quarter of the park. It has resilient flooring and play structures to appeal to multiple ages, including a separate tot area and climbing webs. Benches are nearby for parents.
  2. Try pickleball. The park’s three courts are the first dedicated pickleball courts in St. Paul
  3. Challenge your Child to a Game of HORSE. The full-court basketball court could accommodate more than one game if it is not in use for an actual basketball game.
  4. Bring your dog.  This park does not have an off-leash dog area. But it has a dedicated “dog relief area”. If you do want to go off-leash, it is a 5-minute walk to Uŋčí Makhá Dog Park.
  5. Pack a picnic. The park could be a nice place for a Saturday afternoon play date. It has picnic tables and plenty of green space for spreading a blanket.

Highland Bridge Parks

The four new Saint Paul Parks in the Highland Bridge development project each were named to represent an historical period of the land’s use from indigenous lands to industrial history and now parkland. The chosen names were approved by the Saint Paul City Council in 2021.

  1. Gateway Park. This park is named for the location of the park. It is an important entry point to the Highland Bridge Parks and represents the re-opening of this space for public use.
  2. Assembly Union Park. Named to recognize the importance of the workforce and union labor movement in St. Paul’s history.
  3. Uŋči Makȟa Park (oon-CHEE Ma-KAH). The name means “Mother Earth” in Dakota and acknowledges that these parks were established on ancestral lands of the Dakota Nation.
  4. Míča Park (MEE-cha). Is an abbreviation for “coyote” in Dakota.
