On the Park

Mears Park Enthusiasts,

It has come to our attention that we have a garden "helper" hard raking and scraping many gardens in Mears Park.  Please be mindful that many people do not want their gardens uncovered in mid-March!  Garden plots are assigned if you wish to become a volunteer gardener please contact us via this website. Our gardeners spend a considerable amount of time and spend their own money to tend their gardens. 

PLEASE do not cleanup or tend any of the gardens in Mears Park.

Thank you for your cooperation our volunteer gardeners will appreciate it!

Costly damage to plants & ecosystem!

The Holiday Lights in Mears Park were officially lit on Thanksgiving Eve 2019!  Now is a perfect time to say thank you to all who contributed and how grateful we all are for your donations! Although it's sad to see the beautiful park lights go dark it's time to get ready for next year! If you enjoyed strolling through the magical lights please consider a donation to Friends of Mears Park!
 
SavATree of Afton Minnesota designed and installed the LED lighting. The diagonal path tree canopies were lit with the equivalent of 12,000 mini-lights.  The red and blue trees have 5,000 mini-lights and the pergola icicles add another 2,000.

Please do not feed the squirrels

Feeding the squirrels is causing many problems in the park. Overfeeding them is just cruel. They will relocate to other areas if people would please stop feeding them!

Sec. 45.03. (15-16) of Saint Paul City Code states a section regarding feeding nuisance animals.  https://www.stpaul.gov/departments/parks-recreation/natural-resources/environmental-services/wildlife-programs-and-policy-1
