Little Canada, MN

show info

Despite its international name, Little Canada is actually a inner ring suburb of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. The name is definitely indicative of the Canadian heritage that infuses the town. This is a result of the fact that the city’s founder, Benjamin Gervais, was French Canadian. Nevertheless, locals in this small community find it immediately appealing for its inviting residential qualities. A blend of American Midwest values coupled with Canadian hospitality combine to make Little Canada a place you want to be.

Gervais Mill Park

Gervais Mill Park is located on the site of the grist mill that was established by the first settler in the area, Benjamin Gervais. Gervais built the mill here to operate his business free of government control, which was not possible in nearby St. Paul. Today, the park serves as a recreational and nature area. Enjoy the wonderfully preserved prairie and wetlands that make up the area, as well as the trails to hike and wildlife to behold. Bring your rod for the great fishing at the pond or just relax and enjoy the day.
