Get Around

Find out how to get around in Union Park!​

Biking

You can ride your bike on any street you like throughout Union Park. Bicyclists have the same rights as motorists and can legally ride on any street that's not a freeway.


Bike routes through Union Park include Ayd Mill Road, Summit Avenue, Mississippi River Boulevard, Marshall Avenue, Pelham Boulevard, Prior Avenue, and Griggs Street. The Aldine and Griggs bridges provide crossing over I-94 for bicyclists and pedestrians. 


The City of Saint Paul maintains an updated map of all the bike facilities within its borders. The St. Paul Bicycle Coalition has a page with other useful resources, including a Cycling Map and Guide.


The City has also passed a comprehensive bicycle plan to add bike lanes throughout the city

New Speed Limits

Saint Paul and Minneapolis have lowered speeds on city-owned streets. Lower traffic speeds reduce the likelihood of a crash and make a crash less likely to lead to death or a life-changing injury.  A person hit at 35 mph is three times more likely to die than someone hit at 25 mph.


New speed limits are 20 mph for local residential streets. Saint Paul and Minneapolis have installed new “gateway signs” at entry points in both cities, indicating the citywide speed limit is 20 mph unless otherwise posted. Speed limits may be 25 mph for larger, arterial and collector city-owned streets; and 30-plus mph for a few city-owned streets.  Always follow all posted speed limits.


Visit the city's speed limits page for more information.

20 IS PLENTY sign
