Map - Centennial Showboat
Due to summer road construction in St. Paul, the recommended route to the Padelford & Showboat landings is via the Robert Street Bridge when approaching from the downtown area. There will be ongoing construction closing the Wabasha St. Bridge and Highway 52 Bridge. More info can be found on the City of St. Paul's Website & MNDOT's website. Please be mindful of these detours and plan on giving yourself some extra time to make it down this season.
The Padelford Riverboats and the Centennial Showboat are both located on Harriet Island, however they are located on different sides of the park and have seperate parking lots. The difference in directions is so minor that a few of our passengers end up in the wrong place. Please keep this in mind and read the directions carefully.
