Overview
In 1887, Hidden Falls Regional Park was one of the four original park areas selected for St. Paul by noted landscape architect, Horace Cleveland. Cleveland’s underlying philosophy was to preserve landscape features and the nature that shaped those features while making the parks accessible for all people to enjoy and not just the wealthy. He went on to greatly influence the park systems in both St. Paul and Minneapolis, as well as other Midwestern cities.

The park still contains a primitive setting where nature abounds, in addition to more developed areas.

Hidden Falls is separated from Crosby Farm Park by the Watergate Marina, but connected by the trail system.

Activities: Bicycling and walking trails, picnicking/shelter, grills, two fire rings, horseshoe pits, water fountains, horseshoes, boat launch, fishing, cross country ski trails, waterfall viewing.

Hours: The northern unit is open from sunrise to 10:00 p.m.; the southern unit is open from sunrise to 9:00 p.m., unless otherwise posted.

Contact Information: Call Saint Paul Parks and Recreation at (651) 632-5111.
