Parks

Consisting of 384 acres of land, Como Park offers unmatched recreational opportunities for the residents of this neighborhood and the surrounding areas. A free, donation-based zoo houses polar bears, gorillas, reindeer and a host of other animals. Como Lake on the edge of the park provides a place for paddle boating or canoeing in the summer, while the snowy banks and frosty lake provide areas for cross country skiing and ice skating during the winter months. The park also offers a free tropical conservatory, a Japanese garden and several miles of bicycle trails.

Shopping

As a primarily residential community, Como Park lacks a large amount of shops and boutiques. However, Mr Zero's, located just north of Larpenteur Avenue, sells old records, collectibles, games and videos, and draws shoppers from all over the twin cities. For a more diverse selection of shops, residents can venture outside Como Park to downtown Minneapolis or Grand Avenue in Saint Paul.

In addition to its flagship chains, downtown Minneapolis offers a range of independent shops and high-end boutiques, including the Jeromeo Curiosity Shoppe, the LA Rockler Fur company and Olive Oil from the Farm LLC.

Grand Avenue, situated just a few miles south of Como Park in the Summit-Hill neighborhood, boasts an eclectic blend of high-end jewelry stores, such as Gold'n Treasures; funky gift shops, such as Bibelot; and affordable consignment shops, such as My Sister's Closet. Shoppers enjoy Victorian architecture, charming coffee shops and a quaint vibe on this street.

Como Park residents drive to major grocery stores in Midway on the intersection of University and Snelling, or they head to Roseville, where they can choose between shopping at large chains or searching for delicacies at Byerlys, an upscale grocery store. Co-op fans visit the Mississippi Market, located in Summit-Hill. Every weekend in summer, the area's largest farmers' markets take place less than 10 miles away from Como Park in the city centers of Minneapolis and Saint Paul.

Cost

Living near Como Park costs slightly less on average than living in other parts of Saint Paul. While the average renter of a one-bedroom apartment in Saint Paul pays about $861 per month for rent, one-bedroom apartments in the Como Park neighborhood range from $759 to $800.

Gas is about 5 percent cheaper than the national average here, and beer doesn't carry a high price tag either. Expect to find a frosty pint in this neighborhood for $4 to $5.

Transportation

The quiet residential streets of the Como Park neighborhood lend themselves to safe walking or bicycling through the area. Interstates 35 and 94 lie in close proximity to this neighborhood, making it easy for locals to commute to the downtown areas of either St. Paul or Minneapolis. Ample free parking exists on many of the residential streets, but the streets to the west of the park require parking permits during certain hours of the day.

Most businesses have free parking lots as well. Como Park provides its visitors with ample free parking near its zoo and conservatory, but in the summer months, parking lots around the lake quickly fill up.

Metro transit bus lines serve the area, and most buses have bicycle racks, making it easy to bring your bike with you when you jump on the bus. A great area for bicyclists, the city hosts a range of safe bicycling paths on the road, and scenic trails run through the park and around the lake as well.

Several cab companies, as well as Uber, serve the area, and although residents cannot easily hail a cab in the street, they can call one to the area.

Restaurants

Several restaurants on Larpenter Avenue, north of Como Park, serve the residents of this area. Snuffy's Malt Shop dishes up old-school, fried snacks, such as onion rings, grilled cheese sandwiches or chili cheese fries, but the real attraction remains the thick, homemade milk shakes, including the ever-popular pumpkin pie malt.

Maverick's Roast Beef needs to be on your destination list if you enjoy roast beef, brisket or pulled pork open-faced sandwiches. Locals who prefer fish head to Mac's Fish and Chips.

In the same area, Al's Billiards offers pool and a sober vibe for residents, while the Underground Music Cafe hosts small local bands and serves wine, coffee and Minnesota's own Grey Duck Chai. Residents in search of big screen TVs and sports games head to The Original Gabe's by the Park. Positioned northwest of the park within walking distance, this spacious sports bar yields conventional fare with a few dishes classic to the upper Midwest, including cheese curds.

History

In 1873, the city of Saint Paul purchased Como Lake and encouraged wealthy Minnesotans to build homes around this area. At that time, the land between Como Park and the two city centers consisted primarily of farmland, but as the cities became more populated, those farms turned into the quiet residential streets that make up this neighborhood today.

Como Lake and the area around it continue to be a recreational focal point for the neighborhood, and the park hosts an annual Japanese lantern lighting festival every summer.

In addition to the recreational opportunities supplied by Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, residents of the area enjoy easy access to the neighborhood's own Twin City Model Railroad Museum. Museums within driving distance include the small Gibbs Museum of Pioneer and Dakotah Life and the Museum of Questionable Medical Devices as well as the world-renowned Walker Art Center and the Weisman Art Museum.
