Geography:

West Saint Paul is a city in Dakota County, Minnesota, immediately south of the city of Saint Paul, Minnesota. The quirky naming in part comes from the fact that the city is on the "west" bank of the Mississippi River—the river flows toward the east at this point. U.S. Highway 52, Robert Street, and Minnesota Highway 110 are three of the main routes in the city. Interstate Highway 494 runs just south of the city and Minnesota Highway 3 (unmarked Route 952) runs through the middle of the city as Robert Street.  According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 5.0 square miles (13.0 km˛), of which, 5.0 square miles (13.0 km˛) of it is land and 0.04 square miles (0.1 km˛) of it (0.40%) is water. The elevation is 1,027 ft (313 m) above sea level.
