Indian Mounds Regional Park
The history of this area dates back 2000 years. The park offers a great panoramic view of the Mississippi River and downtown St. Paul. Enclosed by metal rail fences, six ancient Indian burial mounds rest within the rich soil of the park. No climbing on the sacred mounds allowed.An old reconstructed aerial beacon, used for many years by aircraft approaching the Holman Field airport across the river, stands near the mounds. In 1776, a man named Jonathon Carver discovered what is now known as Carver's Cave. Inside the cave, he found ancient artifacts and hieroglyphics. Plaques posted nearby tell the detailed stories of these historical landmarks.This popular park is available for anyone including family picnics, skateboarders, hikers, bikers, groups and field trips. Rustic restrooms are scattered throughout the park for your convenience. No admission charge, but fees may apply to large picnic groups. In that case call +1 651 645 5713 for fees and availability of picnic areas, otherwise first come, first serve.
