Highland Park in St. Paul offers year round family fun, from sledding in winter, swimming and golf in summer and leafing in the fall, there is plenty to keep a family busy. Amenities include two playgrounds, an outdoor water park, both a foot golf and a disc golf course and picnic space with grills. In the winter there are cross country ski trails and a sledding hill.

Note: Highland Park Community Center is NOT a part of this park. It is 2 miles away and located within Hillcrest Park (but not Hillcrest Knoll park; that is a different park). Also note that the aquatic center is located kitty-corner from the rest of the park, across the intersection of Hamline (aka Edgcumbe) and Montreal. Confused? Me too.

Disc Golf & FootGolf Highland Park

The disc golf course is free and open from sunrise to sunset. According to reviews, this is somewhat of a beginner’s course, but is well maintained. For families with small children, the beginner course would be a plus, as you won’t need to worry that you are holding up more serious players.

Highland 9’s FootGolf course is open from mid March into the fall for ages 7 and up. All skill levels are welcome. Bring your own soccer ball or rent one for $3. Dress for activity, but cleats are not allowed. Nine holes costs $9/person and $5 for a second round.
