If residents do not wish to leave town, then there is plenty to do as well. St. Louis Park is the home to numerous retail stores, restaurants, medical facilities, family-owned businesses, corporations, and churches and synagogues.

These parks provide recreation, community space, and beauty to all St. Louis Park residents all year round. Residents of this fine city, enjoy an abundant number of social and recreational activities, along with diverse religious, economic, and education systems. The options are endless in St. Louis Park.
