Here’s a look at Emerson Park 25 years apart in 1997 and today.
Emerson Park: 1997
Back in 1997, West St. Paul parks had different signs—simpler and taller compared to today’s monument signs with plantings. In 1997, Emerson Park had different playground equipment. A warming house is also visible in the background from when the field was flooded to create a skating rink.
Emerson Park: 2022
The park received new playground equipment last year and has the modern sign. Emerson Park’s tennis courts were also converted to pickleball.
