Summit Avenue Regional Trail Master Plan

Welcome, thank you for joining the conversation!


The City Parks and Recreation Department will engage community members to inform and develop a Master Plan for Summit Avenue that reviews the corridor from the Mississippi River to Downtown Saint Paul. This master plan will evaluate opportunities, constraints, and feasibility of a regional trail facility within the corridor and will serve as a guide to future transportation, pedestrian, and parkway improvements.

At this point in the process, no critical decisions have been made regarding impacts to green space. Trail concepts will be shared at the next Technical and Design Advisory Committee meetings in the coming weeks.

Please share your ideas and experiences with the existing corridor and review meeting materials on this engagement site. Meeting links, recording, and content will also be posted here for the next advisory committee meetings when available. When the draft master plan is available, it will be posted on this site for public comment.

During the process, there will be emphasis on developing a preferred cross section for the Lexington to Victoria segment, planned for reconstruction in 2023. Summit Avenue is a Regional Trail Search Corridor identified in the City's Comprehensive Plan and Metropolitan Council's Thrive MSP 2040 Regional Parks Policy Plan.
