Overview

The City of Saint Paul is developing a new 1.5-acre park at the corner of Sharon Ave SE and Emerald Street SE.  As part of the Station Area Planning process for the Westgate light rail station, a need for park space was identified to better serve residents and businesses in this growing area of Saint Paul.  Dominium, an affordable housing developer, acquired the 12-acre Weyerhauser lumber site, including the New Park at Westgate site.  Affordable-housing apartments for seniors and working families is now built to the north of the park site. The City is currently advancing plans for construction of the New Park at Westgate. 

For more information about the process of developing the park concept and its relationship to the surrounding area, please reference the Westgate Public Realm Plan.
