The bookshelves at Wild Rumpus. Above, a boat is affixed to the ceiling.

Since 1992, Wild Rumpus has been a staple in the Linden Hills neighborhood, known for its great selection of children’s books, a special entryway for its younger patrons and its wild inhabitants.

Hoigaard’s is a leader in outdoor equipment and apparel, but it’s the outdoor sporting experience of staff members that sets this St. Louis Park retailer apart. From water sports to cycling, camping to skiing, three department experts share their passion for the outdoors.

Looking to beat the heat? The St. Louis Park Aquatic Park is the place to be this summer. Splash around in water geysers, spray arches, four-story waterslides, a wet sand playground and an inflatable obstacle course.

Every child knows the drill: When you fall down, brush yourself off and get back up. Elliott Royce of St. Louis Park may be far past his childhood years, but he puts this old adage into practice on a regular basis.
