Summit Ave Regional Trail Meeting June 6

Interested residents are invited to join the public Design Advisory Committee meeting on June 6.

Saint Paul Parks and Recreation Department is engaging community members to inform and develop a Master Plan for Summit Avenue that reviews the corridor from the Mississippi River to Downtown Saint Paul. This master plan will evaluate opportunities, constraints, and feasibility of a regional trail facility within the corridor and will serve as a guide to future transportation, pedestrian, and parkway improvements.

At this point in the process, no critical decisions have been made regarding impacts to green space.

Community members are encouraged to attend a public information session planned on June 6 from 7:00-8:30pm for a project update and to review potential trail concepts.

If you would like to attend, please register for the Zoom meeting here.

Please visit to share your ideas and experiences with the existing corridor and review meeting materials. Meeting links, recordings, and content will be posted here for the next advisory committee meetings when available. When the draft master plan is available, it will be posted on this site for public comment.

During the master plan process, there will be emphasis on developing a preferred cross section for the Lexington to Victoria segment, planned for reconstruction in 2023. Summit Avenue is a Regional Trail Search Corridor identified in the Metropolitan Council’s Thrive MSP 2040 Regional Parks Policy Plan.

Funding for the master plan has been secured from the Parks and Trails Legacy Grant. No funding is yet in place for implementing the plan.
