Kaposia Landing

Introduction

Located on the bank of the Mississippi River this 87 acre park has a number of amenities, including a 6.5 acre dog park.

History

Kaposia Landing is the site of a former construction/demolition landfill known as Port Crosby. Never properly capped off, the landfill contained physical hazards, including ground voids and shifting debris. Funded by Minnesota bonding bills in 2004 and 2006, rehabilitation included capping the landfill and stabilizing nearly a mile of Mississippi River shoreline.

Activities

The park contains about two miles of trails for biking and walking on the South Saint Paul Riverfront Trail. The park also has a pavilion and picnic shelter, picnicking, restrooms, playground, softball field, tennis courts, volleyball, ice skating, and dog park. The dog park requires an annual license.
