Playground, pickleball court proposed for Pedro Park redesign
A playground, a pickleball court and space for public art could be coming to St. Paul's Pedro Park.
Driving the news: The city released draft renderings Monday showing the planned makeover of the site at 10th St. E and Robert St. N.
What to expect: Lots of green space and amenities. The latest conceptual design includes a large lawn and room for a splash pad, a dog park and a sheltered area with seating.
- The city plans to demolish the neighboring (and now vacant) Public Safety Annex building as part of the project, The Pioneer Press notes.
Flashback: The land was donated to the city by the owners of Pedro Luggage after the longtime shop closed in the late 2000s.
What's next: Demolition of the annex is expected to start in April and wrap by May.
Yes, but: It could be a while before the transformation is complete. A timeline for construction of the park will be set once funding is secured, a city spokesperson told Axios.
