After living in the Twin Cities for 21 years we finally decided to visit Minnehaha Park and are really glad that we did. The park is located not far from downtown Minneapolis and is easy to find if you know your way around town. The parking can get tight if you arrive on a nice day with limited meter parking... More

While visiting Minneapolis we took a day and biked the trails at Minnehaha Park. The trails are paved and easy biking. I did feel there could have been more signage as we had trouble finding the Minnehaha Falls. While we stopped and looked at a bike map a fellow runner stopped us and asked directions to one of the lakes.... More

The Minnehaha Park is a very pretty spot, with a beautiful waterfall. There's also an informal restaurant there with a wide variety of sea food. A great place for a visit for a pleasant stroll in a natural setting.

We visited family in Minneapolis. One of the highlights of our visit was Minnehaha park. Minneapolis is to be congratulated on establishing and maintaining beautiful, very extensive parkland all over the city, that is set up so people can take advantage of many types of outdoor sports and exercise. Minnehaha Falls is stunning - you can walk right down by... More

Wonderful park within Minneapolis. Minnehaha Falls was wonderful. Feels like a National Park. Hard to believe it's in the city limits.

This was one of the stops on the city tour and it was lovely. I could see spending much more time here walking around and enjoying the falls and parks. It's a good family place to stop and very close to town. I believe city buses go there as well as tour buses and there seemed to be lots of... More

Minnehaha Falls is worth going to see.There are great views of the falls. Would love to see it in the winter when it freezes.

This is a great place to spend the day, see the falls and walk the pathway to the Mississipi river and soak your feet in the big Muddy! The paths are good but dwindle down to a trail nearer the river. The view at the end is worth it... Downside ...not much parking... Recommend a good 4-5 hours to see... More

What spectacular views of the Minnehaha Creek and of the Minnehaha Falls. Make sure you stop by Sea Salts for a tasty snack and a thirst quenching beverage!

You must raise your voice over the roar of Minnehaha Falls this year. There was a lot of rain in the early summer, and it is keeping the creek level high. The flowers in the gardens are beautiful as well. Have a lovely, and scrumptious, outdoor dinner at Sea Salt right in the Park.
