Currently Under Construction

Dickerman Park is currently undergoing a full renovation.Dickerman Park in St. Paul is a quarter-mile stretch of land just north of the Green Line light rail between Fairview Avenue and Aldine Street. Because of its proximity to the light rail, it is sometimes referred to as “Green Line Park”. The space is currently being overhauled as part of an effort to add vibrant gathering spaces along the Green Line corridor.

Improvements will incorporate the oak trees already occupying the space and add new concrete walks, a lighted plaza, with seating, bike racks, and a lawn. Plantings will include brightly colored gardens that span the park’s entire width and highlight the oaks.
