South St. Paul Parks & Recreation: 651-366-6200, Register at City Hall,  125 3rd Avenue North, South St. Paul

The Community Garden is a popular amenity to residents of the City of South St. Paul having been in existence at the Fleming Field McMorrow site since the early 1990’s. Due to its proximity to the Fleming Field Airport runway, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has directed the removal of the historic Community Garden site from what they have designated as the Runway Protection Zone (RPZ) to comply with the FAA land use guidelines.
