Mears Park in downtown St. Paul is an award-winning work of design by artist Brad Goldberg with city landscape architect Don Ganje. The two-acre urban park takes an entire city block and is split diagonally by a stream that meanders around rock and under bridges among scattered birch trees. There are a number of carved stone benches and walls throughout the park. The park also features a bandstand for public performances, making it a combination of natural escape and functional park, right in the heart of the city.

In 2000 the American Society of Landscape Architects designated Mears Park one of the best urban parks in America built in the last 100 years.
