Explore Outdoors Saint Paul season kicks off May 16 at Take Aim at Summer Fun event.

Our Neighbor City - St. Paul is ACTIVE.   With the urban population increasingly disengaged from nature, and obesity-related and other health problems on the rise, reconnecting with outdoor recreation opportunities has never been more important. To meet this challenge,Saint Paul Parks and Recreation and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR)are spearheading a new initiative called Explore Outdoors Saint Paul. The effort gathers over 100 existing activities from many local agencies onto an online calendar of events from May through September, geared for families, adults of all ages, and youth. Activities are free or low-cost, and all equipment is provided. The calendar is now available on the City of Saint Paul’s website at bitly.com/exploreSTP, with more activities to be added throughout the season.
