Hillcrest Knoll

Hillcrest Knoll is one of the newer parks in Saint Paul, created after a flood in 1997 caused several houses to be condemned; a commemorative plaque is on the south side of the park, on Montana Street, between Kennard and Flandrau. The Hillcrest area, as the name suggests, is one of the higher elevations of the city, but this low spot (knoll) is now a catch basin for rain; it is usually a fairly dry area with a meandering path and one picnic area.
