Loring Park is located on the western edge of Downtown Minneapolis near the Basilica of Saint Mary. It is also next to the I-94 freeway so it is not the quietest Park in a city. It is an older park as the land was acquired and the park built around 1885. It is named in honor of the first president... More

This wonderful little park holds a special place for us. Shortly after we were married and moved to the cities, we went to this park to eat some corn nuts and relax. Before long, we found ourselves surrounded by squirrels and we ended up feeding them the corn nuts during the rest of time there. In so doing, we found... More

This is a lovely gem of a park just a short walk from the main downtown area. A beautiful small lake to walk around (and fish in, if you are so inclined), big trees, lots of benches in shade or sun as desired, meandering walkways, and a gorgeous perennial garden. There is some noise from the freeway, but the park... More

Beautiful park with walkways and flowers everywhere. We didn't come across any homeless people as mentioned in other reviews, just walkers, bikers and people enjoying the grounds. If you stop here, make sure you cross the bridge over the street to go to the Sculpture Gardens where the large spoon and cherry is. Highly recommend both parks!

Loring Park is nice get away park within walking distance of downtown. My visit did not include any of the homeless or street noise another reviewer mentioned. I did see families, bike riders and some folks sunning in the grass. There is a nice lake and plenty of benches. It is also directly across the highway from the Walker Art... More

Loring Park is an easy walk from downtown Minneapolis. The park is a nice place to sit and relax. The down side is the traffic noise and homeless people.

Lovely walks around the pond, tennis courts and gardens. A garden in the city. Very close to the Walker Art museum and sculpture garden, you can spend the whole day strolling in a lovely setting.

A nice place to take a stroll around a pond with a friend. There's a cute little dog park. Just an over-all pleasant place, and if you need coffee Dunn brothers is just across the street.

Check out Loring Park when you visit the Walker and Sculpture Garden -- a pedestrian bridge to walk across. It's an urban park for a short stroll -- beautiful fountain.
