1901 Alta Vista Drive
Hours: Sunrise until Sunset
You can walk for miles in this 120-acre Roseville park and see little sign of development — just hilly terrain with lots of pine trees, wetlands, prairie grass, and savanna.
The site, which includes some of the highest ground in Roseville, is home to a 30-million gallon, underground water reservoir that for years had been operated by the City of St. Paul. When the reservoir became outdated, St. Paul sold the land to the City of Roseville in 1997.
That land was added to 34 acres of land that the City leases from Roselawn Cemetery to create the park.
Neighborhood task forces and park and recreation planners expressed the wish that this new park remain pristine and forest like. Outside of adding a pathway, the only development the City has done is to restore eroding soft trails and eradicate invasive plants such as buckthorn and purple loosestrife. Amenities: wooded terrain, trails and access to adjacent marsh area.
