Indian Mounds Park is one of the largest parks of St. Paul, famous for the burial mounds along the river bluff. It lies across the Mississippi River from the airport. The mounds themselves are near the intersection of Mounds Blvd. and Earl Street.
In the short section of Burns Avenue east of Highway 61 and west of Upper Afton road lies the entrance to this roadside rest area with a few picnic tables and a panoramic view of the Mississippi River and downtown St. Paul.
