What a Beautiful Place

Easy to find, easy to park - nice place for an unforgettable stroll. We had a few hours to kill prior to our flight and found this gorgeous distraction with a bit of history.

Loved that it is so close to the city. The waterfall was actaully larger than expected. Other than the waterfall, go there if you like to trek around wilderness

Have to admit this park was an unexpected surprise. It costs a dollar to park, but well worth it. The waterfall at the entrance of the park was very impressive. In fact there is a path that leads along the stream and to the pretty bridges. We spent much more time exploring this pretty park than we expected. There is... More

The park itself is better maintained than the area immediately around the falls. The falls are pretty and worth seeing if you're in the park, but many of the overlooks' views are blocked by overgrown trees and shrubs.

Minnehaha Park was a nice little escape from the city while still being in the city. You can tell it is a very popular place as parking was at a premium when we got there. The waterfall is beautiful and we enjoyed the hike from the waterfall to the Mississippi River where we lounged on a the beach, skipped stones,... More

We've been to Minneapolis \St.Paul 1000's of times and have never been here, what were we thinking? It's beautiful and rivals some of the more beautiful waterfalls we've seen in Hawaii, no exaggeration. Of course there are waterfalls in Hawaii that can't be beat, but realizing that this has been here this whole time, well we just can't believe it.... More

Had been recommended this area by a local outdoor store salesperson- glad she told me. Pretty spot, good walking tracks and lots of good picnic and play areas.

Parking and crowds may be an issue, however this is my favorite park in Minneapolis! It represents the beauty of Minnesota so well!

I went to Minneapolis with my friends for my bachelorette party and wish SO MUCH that I had known about this place. My fiance ended up meeting me in Minneapolis after and that's when we discovered Minnehaha. We hiked around the water fall (stunning), enjoyed a local brew + hard cider and ate the best seafood in town (great prices!).... More
