Linwood Recreation Center
The Summit Hill neighborhood is very fortunate to have the Linwood Community Recreation Center, located at 860 St. Clair Avenue. It is the site of not only many activities for residents of all ages, but also meeting spaces, indoor and outdoor sports and exercise amenities, and a popular playground and park. To learn more about the Center, please visit its webpage at: https://www.stpaul.gov/facilities/linwood-recreation-center for complete information on activities, events, amenities, as well as how to register.
Be sure to visit the Sam Morgan Prairie Restoration Site, which is overseen by the Summit Hill Association Environment and Beautification Committee and the City of St. Paul Parks and Recreation Department. It is named after longtime Summit Hill resident and conservationist Samuel H. Morgan, and is a surviving remnant of the native prairies that once flourished on the hillsides and bluffs along the Mississippi River in the Twin Cities. Overlooking the bluffs by the eastern end of the park near Avon Street, this area was rediscovered in the late 1990s and was restored and preserved. It’s an important community asset and another reminder of our heritage in the historic Summit Hill neighborhood.
