Point Douglas Regional Trail Master Plan

Subscribe to Point Douglas Regional Trail Master Plan Updates

Project Overview

Point Douglas Trail is located in the southeast region of City of Saint Paul running along Highway 61 from Burns Avenue to Bailey Road. It is mainly used for walking and biking. The purpose of the project is to prepare a master plan for future Point Douglas Regional Trail which includes community engagement, assessing trail feasibility, and engineering testing.

Funding has been secured from the Parks and Trails Legacy Grant.

Public Engagement

Virtual Presentation #1: Released October 9, 2020
Parks and Recreation is restarting the Point Douglas Regional Trail community engagement process and we need your input! In lieu of an in-person meeting, Parks and Rec created a narrated presentation (link below) and interactive map (link below) to receive feedback about the existing corridor. Please watch the video which describes the project, discusses existing conditions, and explains how to navigate the interactive map. After watching the video or viewing the presentation slides, please provide comments about the opportunities and constraints of the corridor by using the interactive map or emailing brett.hussong@ci.stpaul.mn.us by October 31.
This information will help to develop the future preliminary trail alignment.

Community Open House:  Tuesday March 24, 2020 POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
The City of Saint Paul Parks and Recreation has secured Legacy funding to prepare a master plan for a future regional trail along Point Douglas Road between Burns Ave and Bailey Rd. Please join us March 24th (POSTPONED) for an open house at the Battle Creek Recreation Center (75 Winthrop St S) from 6:00-7:00pm to review the project timeline and evaluate opportunities and constraints along the corridor.
