These urban lakes with adjacent residential neighborhoods nearby include:
- Lake Como – A central feature of Como Park, this lake is the core of St. Paul’s largest park – Como Park. Within the park are a zoo, a conservatory, Como Town, a children’s amusement park, and miles of trails and other features. Residential neighborhoods can be found adjacent to the eastern and southern shores of the lake, with the rest of the lakefront surrounded by parkland.
- Phalen Lake – This fascinating, deep, and beautiful lake is located in the heart of the East Side of St. Paul. Like Lake Como, much of its lake-front is surrounded by Phalen Park, but the eastern shore, as well as part of the southeastern shore of the lake is adjacent to residential neighborhoods.

- Beaver Lake – This vest-pocket 60 acre-lake is nestled into a far eastern corner of St. Paul, just off McKnight road, near Maryland Ave. A Ramsey County Park on the western shore of the lake wraps completely around the lake, preventing any lakefront development. However the small Beaver Lake neighborhood, just to the west of the lake, includes a number of lakeview homes, along with many homes within easy walking distance of the lake. Fishing and canoeing are popular activities on Beaver Lake.
