Como Park homes for sale include bungalows, ramblers and two-story homes built in the 1960s and earlier, although there is some new construction in the area, as well. There are no homes built on Lake Como, but many homes offer lake views.
This St. Paul neighborhood has a rich abundance of parks and recreational opportunities, including Lake Como and surrounding Como Park, the most widely used park in the Twin Cities. The park offers biking and walking paths, paddleboats for rent and a pavilion featuring summertime theater performances and concerts.
