Anthony Park was laid out as a neighborhood between downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul in the 1870’s. The vision of landscape architect Horace Cleveland was to create a neighborhood with large estates that matched the contours of the land, giving the area its unique feel. Saint Anthony Park is adjacent to the University of Minnesota Saint Paul campus, at the border of southeastern Minneapolis on the west. It also abuts the Minnesota State Fairgrounds on the east. St. Anthony Park is centrally located in the Twin Cities, with a business district that contains a variety of independent, locally-owned shops and restaurants. The Carnegie Library and the St. Anthony Park Elementary School are hubs of the neighborhood. St. Anthony Park, known to residents as SAP, is home to two colleges: The St. Paul campus of the University of Minnesota and the Luther Seminary.
