The city of St. Paul wants to bring more people to its riverfront shores.

That's why it held a public neighborhood meeting Tuesday night on a $600,000 renovation plan for Lower Landing Park.

The 21-acre park sits just outside of downtown, along the Mississippi River on Warner Road in St. Paul's Lowertown neighborhood.

The city wants to add a public art gallery, an improved picnic area, space for food trucks, basketball courts and a dog park.

"This is our long-term vision of the park," said Bianca Paz, a landscape designer with St. Paul's Parks and Recreation department. "It's based on community input."

Said Lisa Rojas, who owns nearby Dreadlocks for Dingoes: "Lowertown St. Paul has been growing rapidly. It's a nice little park. I think it's a great idea."
