What a wonderful ice skating experience. A few friends and I went to check this out one night and couldn't have been happier. Christmas lights and snow surrounded the lake, turning it into a winter wonderland type scene that looked like it came straight from a classic painting. With so much skating area, we never felt crowded or limited by... More

Very well maintained walking paths, even in winter weather. A pleasant place to walk with holiday lights and music (speakers all along the walkway). The ice has frozen smooth (Dec.2014) so grab your skates or rent a pair($6) right there! You can also rent kick-sleds ($7 per hour). Warm your toes by the fire outside or visit the warming house,...

Centennial Lakes Park is an hidden gem in the city of Edina. I have been working out of the Centennial Lakes office park that surrounds the south lake of the Centennial Lakes Park for the past two weeks and the walking path is a pure joy!

This is a lovely, peaceful place for people of all ages. There is a very nice paved walkway (more than 1.5 miles) around a large lake. It’s a perfect quiet place for walkers or runners. The walkway is dotted with benches and swings for resting and taking in the view of the lake, birds, trees, or paddleboats – which are... More

Loops and is about 2.5 miles round trip from the Westin Edina - can pretty much go right out the back of the hotel and take a nice run around the park! I love staying there for that reason alone.

Great relaxing atmosphere, perfect for walking or working. Well maintained and landscaped. The pond creates a relaxing place to find a bench and enjoy the day.

This is a lovely place to walk and sit near the man-made canal where you can rent paddleboats, watch people racing their remote control boats, play mini-golf or lawn bowling. On Thursdays in summer there is a farmers market in the afternoon. In the winter months, when the waterway is frozen, you can ice skate; skate rental is available.

Beautiful Park. Very safe. A hidden gem. If you like to walk along the water enjoying the different landscape this is the place for you. Plenty of benches and swings to sit in. This park is great for couples, families, or going solo.

Centennial Lakes is super affordable, year 'round fun for all ages. It's a man made lake in the middle of a circle of office buildings and condos in the Minneapolis suburb, Edina. I haven't seen many places like it. Summer! The lake goes to about 20 feet deep and is stocked with fish every summer. The boat house sells bait... More

Centennial lakes is the best an urban setting has to offer. With a beautiful lake, gardens, and walking paths, it never disappoints on a summer afternoon. If you are in the area and want to enjoy the weather, take a walk around the lake, play mini-golf, or rent a paddle boat. Even in the winter they offer beautiful ice-skating on... More
