City Open House a HUGE success

The City of St. Louis Park’s Community Open House held June 9th drew a huge crowd despite the overcast 66-degree day. The event featured free swimming, ice skating and food, giveaways, a chance to view city vehicles, and exhibits by city departments and local organizations including Children First.

These lucky people stopped by the Children First booth, shared their sparks and won Twins tickets provided courtesy of Park Nicollet Foundation.
