City of Saint Paul and community partners celebrate grand opening of Assembly Union Park
New city park space is the third within the Highland Bridge development and the first Saint Paul park with dedicated pickleball courts
SAINT PAUL – The City of Saint Paul today celebrated the grand opening of Assembly Union Park, a brand-new 1.55 acre park at the Highland Bridge development. The new park features a large play area, basketball court, picnic tables, and three pickleball courts. The new pickleball courts will be the first dedicated courts of their kind within system.
"Assembly Union Park at Highland Bridge is an exciting reimagination of a former industrial site, offering a variety of amenities that cater to all residents and visitors," said Mayor Carter. "This inclusive park adds incredible value and vibrancy to our award-winning parks system."
The name Assembly Union Park recognizes the site's industrial history and the Ford Motor Company workforce as contributing members of the surrounding communities.
“Kids, pickleball players, hoopers – pretty much everyone who likes to have fun – have been waiting impatiently for this park to open since the design was first released," said Councilmember Chris Tolbert. “The neighborhood is ecstatic for the fun to begin.”
Assembly Union Park is located at 875 Mount Curve Boulevard. This is the third of four new City of Saint Paul parks to be constructed at the Highland Bridge development.
