ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — A St. Paul Park is on the list for the 2011 Great Places In America.

Rice Park in downtown St. Paul made the list of Top 10 Great Public Spaces put out by the American Planning Association, a non-profit educational organization.

The CEO of APA said, “Rice Park’s splendor stems from its simplicity and permanence. … It provides a visual and physical respite from the impressive collection of buildings and busy street life that surround it.”

The list, which started in 2007, recognizes unique and exemplary streets, neighborhoods, and public spaces — honoring 10 places in each category.

Wisconsin also made the top 10 list with Milwaukee RiverWalk also named as a Great Public Space.
