Our City

The City of Saint Paul is Minnesota's capital city and the 2nd largest city in our state with a population of more than 300,000. We are home to a diverse group of residents who speak over 125 languages and dialects. We have more than 170 parks and open spaces, and more shoreline on the Mississippi River than any other city.

 We are at an exciting time in our history: our population has increased by 24,000 people over the past decade, and across our city, we are experiencing growth and change. This presents an enormous opportunity for the future of our city, but also requires that we work to ensure everyone in our community can participate in the benefits of Saint Paul's growing prosperity. That is why we are committed to ensuring our public services and our entire city works for all of us.
