ESAC's Phalen Lake Poetry Park is in the news! The Knight Arts blog reviewed several St. Paul art parks and had lovely things to say about our community garden. "This serene community garden lies at the southern edge of Lake Phalen’s park; true to its name, the space is a wonderful little nook in which to sit and read. Since the garden is tucked away, off the main path for the primary picnic grounds, playground and popular beach areas, this appealing spot is never busy, even on days when the lake is bustling with visitors." —Susannah Schouweiler
