Battle Creek is a stream in Minnesota. It rises in Battle Creek Lake in Woodbury, passing through residential Maplewood and St. Paul before emptying into the Mississippi River via Pigs Eye Lake. It is followed for much of its length by walking paths.

Battle Creek was named in commemoration of an 1842 battle between the Ojibwe and Sioux Indians.[1]
