Walkable St. Anthony Park

St. Anthony Park is one of St. Paul’s most charming and popular walkable neighborhoods. With hilly terrain, winding streets and large irregular lots, it was first developed in the late 1800’s as estates for the wealthy.

Today it is fun to just walk the streets, which have some of the most eclectic architecture in the metro area. Its wide range of sizes and styles include historic Victorians, Queen Annes, bungalows, craftsman and prairie school… plus the adjacent and unique University Grove, with all 20th century architect-designed homes.


Bordering the St. Paul campus of the University of Minnesota and home to Luther Theological Seminary, St. Anthony Park is a diverse community with a ‘university faculty’ feel. Its residents are very involved in the community, and 67% of its residents have at least a 4-year college degree. Its Carnegie library is one of the busiest in St. Paul. Its active Community Council sponsors events throughout the year, such as their Green on the Screen films showing in March and April.

In addition to neighborhood walking, St. Anthony Park has a ‘very walkable’ walk score, with restaurants, coffee shops, shopping and books all within its town center on Como Avenue… which feels like a sleepy village that time forgot.

Its largest park was named after one of its famous former residents, Nathaniel Langford, who helped create Yellowstone Park. Other famous former residents include author Saul Bellow, Garrison Keillor, psychologist BF Skinner and architect Sarah Susanka, author of the Not So Big House.
