Como Park


Walking or biking through Como feels like a trip well beyond urban boundaries. The big park that gives this peaceful residential neighborhood its name is graced with a beautiful lake, an airy pavilion where orchestras and bands serenade in the warm months, and with a zoo that, while smaller than the suburban Minnesota Zoo, holds a special place in the hearts of several generations of Saint Paulites, and features an aquatic polar bear. The Como Park Conservatory, full of gorgeous flowers and other tropical plants, is a favorite spot for snapping wedding photos and for an hour or two of winter-denial.
