Saint Anthony Central Park sits on the city's municipal complex and shares a block with the fire department, city water tower, community center and the high school (which houses the community pool). Water Tower Park also occupies this block.
Playground and Splash Pad
Although you cannot see either from the street, this park has a good sized playground and a splash pad. It also houses a skateboard park and sports fields and courts.
The splash pad is a little scary. It is one large concrete area with a tall sprinkler in the center. While most splash pads are on concrete, the room to run makes me nervous. Wet concrete + room to run + a lot of kids = scary for parents but fun for kids. The splash pad usually opens in late May and closes in early September.
Winter at Saint Anthony Central Park
In the winter, the village maintains an ice skating and hockey rink at this location.
