This park is in development

Gateway Park is the name of Gateway District portion of Saint Paul’s new Highland Bridge Parks.  Together these four parks occupy 9 acres of 122 acres of a former Ford Motor Company assembly plant.  The remainder of the old plant will contain privately-owned spaces designed for public use. Gateway Park officially opened in June of 2022.

Overview of planned Gateway Park layout

This park sits in the northwest corner of the site at the intersection of Ford Parkway & Mississippi River Boulevard South in St. Paul and serves as the main entrance of the Highland Bridge Parks.  It will be adjacent to offices and retail shops to the east and residential housing the south. A great deal of planning is going into this neighborhood’s social, economic and ecological impact.

The new park includes a skatepark (with its own designated skate trail), biofiltration basins, stormwater pond, viewing platform, walking paths, picnic tables, game tables, bike rack, drinking fountain and a connection “gateway” to Mississippi River Boulevard.

Plans for Public Art

The city plans to commission a public art for the entrance of this park that would be as iconic as Minneapolis’s Spoonbridge and Cherry but represent Saint Paul and specifically this site.
