Little Bohemia Pleasant Park Improvement

Help us build a park! Pleasant Park was created out of unused land owned by the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The Little Bohemia Neighborhood Association has transformed this land into a community gathering space, but is still needs work.

Our proposed project will add walking paths, benches, and landscaping (perennial and annual). Once the landscaping is complete, the park will be included on a neighborhood garden tour that will take place on June 16.

Volunteers needed: 11-20

Partners: Little Bohemia Neighborhood Association, Fort Road Federation, City of St. Paul
