Coming Home to Swede Hollow on OCTOBER 1

Enjoy local food and music along the trail while taking in new interpretive signs.

Join us to dedicate new signs that interpret the place that indigenous and immigrant relatives called home. Musicians will be stationed along the trail, and additional historical information will be available at select stops. Fill out a “passport” of all the signs to be eligible for a prize drawing of gift certificates to local restaurants.

Most of the new signs are along an easy ½-mile walk along the Bruce Vento trail. We are working to arrange a golf cart for greater accessibility.

Enter the trail either at the Bruce Vento trailhead parking lot at 7th and Payne or the Drewry Tunnel entrance off Beaumont Street (parking available at Hope Community Academy).

This event is held in partnership with Friends of Swede Hollow, Lower Phalen Creek Project, Dayton’s Bluff Community Council, Payne-Phalen Community Council, and Saint Paul Parks and Recreation.
