Crosby Farm Park

Saint Paul

A working farm until the early 1960s, Crosby Farm Park has been restored to how it could have appeared before farming began. The wetlands, remnants of when the river once flowed through the park, have been restored, and a host many species of water fowl.

The flood plain forest along the Mississippi river is home to massive cottonwood trees and silver maples that can survive long term submersion. In early spring the park is frequently flooded, so parts of the park may not be accessible at that time.

The bluffs on the north side of the park, with their exposed layers of limestone and sandstone, give an excellent glimpse into the geologic history of the Twin Cities region.
