Irvine Park and West Seventh Street Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This walk juxtaposes St. Paul’s oldest surviving neighborhood, Irvine Park, with the newest hot spot where St. Paul goes to party, West 7th St. Historically, the West 7th St. neighborhood was a hardscrabble, working-class, and close-knit community largely from two villages in southern Italy.

The Italian immigrants made the most of the often-flooded Upper Levee Flats, later known as Little Italy. They were relocated by the city after 1960—Cossetta is one of the surviving businesses that moved up the hill from the levee, where Shepard Rd. and upscale condos are now located. Since Xcel Energy Center opened in 2000, the area has transformed into a bustling business district filled with restaurants and bars that are popular venues for celebrating after Minnesota Wild hockey games, concerts, conventions, and events."
