Amusing, whimsical touch at one end of the Smith Ave High Bridge. The bridge itself is worth at trip to see St Paul from across the Mississippi!

We had a lot of fun climbing and posing at the Large Green Chair. The climbing is a bit harder than I had thought due to my height. It is about 20 minutes walk from Rice Park.

Love the Big Green Chair in St. Paul but damn kids have written vulgar graffiti all over this big beautiful piece. I get so angry when people deface public property of any kind. Rude bull shirt... still neat to see and a good photo op...More

Was hard to find. There was no parking lot. Literally spent 2 minutes there. Pass on this, you'll thank me.

I like quirky, random, fun things, but this was a disappointment. It was hard to get here for starters. Then when we got there we said, "That's it?" Parking was difficult as it was off road and there was a lot of traffic going by,...More

Huge chair. My kids had a lot of fun taking lots of pictures. It was unique! Worth exploring the park that is beside the nice bridge.

This was a fun quick place to stop at. They city or whoever manages the site could paint over the profanity written on the chair.

If you read this around Mother's Day (May 14th), you need to go to the Green Chair just to see the mature blooming crab blooming next to it. The chair doesn't change much, but that blooming crab is show stopping right now. I saw it...More

Large green chair. Not much else. It's at the north end east side of the high bridge (smith avenue).

Big green chair is a must see, only takes about 5 minutes, but it's fun and a local spot. Get a fun pic and be on your way, very close to downtown.
