Located on the Mississippi River, Raspberry Island Regional Park
provides stunning views of downtown Saint Paul. A renovation in 2008
made the island even more beautiful with the replacement of a rip-rap
revetment to protect the riverbank and the addition of several
landscaping features, including a walking path, access points to the
river, planting beds, benches, lighting, and parking lot improvements.
Restroom facilities were also added to the Minnesota Boat Club building.
The commitment to maintaining the aesthetics of Raspberry Island
Regional Park earned it a prestigious award in the Public Landscape
Design Category in 2009.
