Saint Joan of Arc Peer Ministers
Our Peer Minister's compiled a list of their favorite places to go in the Cities. Here's what they came up with!
1. Raspberry and Harriet Island- Saint Paul
The award-winning Harriet Island Regional Park located on the Mississippi River, as well as Raspberry Island Regional Park, provides stunning views of downtown Saint Paul.
2. Bruce Vento Regional Trails
3. Hidden Falls Regional Park
The park dates back to 1887, when it was selected by Horace Cleveland, a nationally known landscape architect and park planner, as one of four major park sites for the City of Saint Paul.
4. Como Park and Conservatory
The Marjorie McNeely Conservatory and Como Park is full of trails, Como Lake, fields, pavilions, and trees to hammock. The Conservatory is officially open, by reservation, starting today!

Both lakes are great for swimming, boating, running, and just being with friends outside!
