The Saint Paul Department of Parks and Recreation has received a $250,000 grant from the state to construct a long-awaited recreation center shelter with restrooms at Victoria Park.

Victoria Park is a city park on what used to be a fuel tank farm at West Seventh Street and Otto Avenue. The shelter will be constructed near Victoria Way and Adrian Street. The park, which has been undergoing development for several years, already has trails, a Mississippi River overlook and natural areas. It will also have several athletic fields when it is fully built out.
