What's the Adopt-a-Park or Garden Program?
We hope you’ll consider adopting a park or garden near you! Monitor one as a family, community group, neighborhood, church or business. It’s a great way to get outdoors and take pride in the community you live in. We just ask that you visit the park twice a month through September to pick up litter and check for damage. (Assignments can be arranged around summer vacation schedules.) For more information, contact Volunteer Coordinator Laura Smith at 952.928.2847 or
What are the rules for posting signs in St. Louis Park?
Open house, for sale, for rent and other temporary signs cannot be posted on public property, trees or the public right-of-way, including curbside areas of lawns, utility poles and traffic signs. City ordinance also regulates the size and placement of permanent signs. For more information, contact Zoning Administrator Gary Morrison at 952.924.2592 or
What are the requirements for garage sales in St. Louis Park?
Residents may conduct two garage sales per year, each lasting a maximum of 72 consecutive hours. Please do not post signs on utility poles, traffic signs or public right-of-ways, such as curbside areas of lawns. Garage sale signs should be removed as soon as the sale is over. Please consider donating unsold household items to a charity, such as the Salvation Army, rather than throwing them in the garbage.
