Ward 1: the Heart of the City
Ward 1 includes the Thomas-Dale (Frogtown), Summit-University district councils/neighborhoods, and the portion of the Union Park District Council that is east of Snelling Avenue and includes the Lexington-Hamline and Snelling-Hamline communities. Ward 1 represents "the heart of Saint Paul," in terms of both geography and composition. The neighborhoods in Ward 1 comprise the City's most racially and economically diverse ward, and provide a rich tapestry of people and history. Ward 1 is home to the Saint Paul Cathedral, Golden Thyme Cafe, Penumbra Theatre, Mai Village, the Minnesota Transportation Museum and the Rondo Community Outreach Library.
