Frogtown Park and Farm
St. Paul's Frogtown neighborhood is home to a diverse immigrant population that shares strong agricultural traditions. The city's 2008 park system master plan recommended that a park be located in this densely populated area-so in 2012, The Trust for Public Land stepped in to help. We are working with local nonprofit Frogtown Gardens to purchase a vacant 12.7-acre site that originally housed the Sisters of the Good Shepherd convent. The Wilder Foundation, which sold the property, significantly reduced the sale price to ensure the land would be used to benefit the community.
The proposed park includes an active play area, a nature preserve, and an urban demonstration farm where neighbors will be able to learn about different farming traditions. The Trust for Public Land will work with public and private partners to assemble funds to complete the project.
