Sunday’s Site – Roseville Central Park

With 225 acres, Roseville Central Park is one of the largest city parks in the area…so big that it is officially listed as five different developed parks connected by trails and one undeveloped park area…so sprawling that it is divided by three major streets…so broad that it has something for almost everyone.

Harriet Alexander Nature Center is on the east end bordering Dale Street, with 52 acres of marsh, prairie and forest habitat, 1.34 miles of trails and an interpretive center. On the other side of Dale is the Muriel Sahlin Arboretum, a beautiful setting for weddings and other formal gatherings.


It seems that most Twin Cities major parks have a lake and Roseville Central Park has Lake Bennett with a surrounding trail bordering its picnic and play areas. But we’re not done yet…the park also includes a community amphitheater and six softball fields…a true city park with something to suit nearly everyone!


Roseville‘s location as a first-ring suburb with borders touching both St. Paul and Minneapolis make it a great location for easy access to both downtowns. Clients who have bought near Roseville Central Park tell me they love its location…with the park, trails and major shopping centers nearby, as well as easy access to both downtowns and multiple colleges and universities, they found just the sense of place they were looking for.
