We meet the first Tuesday of most months at Town and Country Club from 7- 8:30 pm, located at 300 N Mississippi River Blvd in Saint Paul.

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.
We’re starting a Desnoyer Park email list. It’s important to the Desnoyer Park Improvement Association to find ways (we are working on this!) to better connect residents in hopes of fostering communication and collaboration around community interests. Do you want to become more involved in the neighborhood? Are you interested in starting a gardening, walking, or book club? Connect with other families that live in Desnoyer Park? Meet more neighbors? Maybe you have ideas to improve the playground or you want to volunteer to help maintain and improve general livability issues in our community. We want to hear from you!
“Like”the Desnoyer Park Facebook Page, for updates and to participate in online discussions about Desnoyer Park happenings.
