Desnoyer Park

At the corner of Pelham Boulevard and Doane Avenue, you’ll find what our neighborhood was named after – Desnoyer Park.


The neighborhood has approximately 300 households and some 1,000 residents. Platted in 1887, the historic Desnoyer Park neighborhood lies between the Mississippi River Blvd., Marshall, Cretin, and St. Anthony Aves., and the Town and Country Club on Otis Ave. The Desnoyer Park neighborhood is part of the Union Park District in St. Paul.


Desnoyer Park Improvement Association or DPIA, is a membership organization which has been working to better the Desnoyer Park neighborhood for over 50 years. 


The Annual Neighborhood Picnic will be scheduled for late summer 2020 instead of the usual mid-July Tuesday night it usually occurs due to COVID-19. The currently scheduled date is Tuesday August 25th at 6PM.
