Phillips & Elliot Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Park Avenue conjures up images of the affluent street of the same name in New York City, and elsewhere across the United States where the name was given to neighborhoods in obvious imitation. The Park Ave. area of Minneapolis was once the city’s Victorian mansion row— much as Summit Ave. is in St. Paul, with more than 30 mansions between 18th and 28th Streets.

However, Park Ave. suffered a different fate than Summit Ave. due to its easily accessible location directly south of downtown on flat prairie land. Instead of falling into disrepair and remaining so for decades, as its larger St. Paul counterpart did, Park Ave. was repeatedly redeveloped from 1890 to its 1920 heyday."
