Our friends took us to see this park one evening. This park has a wonderful waterfall, a café and different pedal-powered vehicles you can rent. The parking is reasonable and has plenty of picnic area. There are a series of steps that lead to the base of the waterfall where a really nice picture can be taken. There are benches... More

Beautiful park where you can rent cycles and travel all around this very large park. The park has waterfalls and a lot of areas where people grill, eat and spend a good, summer day.

We visited Minnehaha Falls and Park and had a great time at the end of July. We viewed the falls and then walked the trails next to the water to where the water dumps into the Mississippi River. From this location, you can see a lock and dam that is just upstream a bit. We spent some time on the... More

My boyfriend and I spent almost 7 hours at (or around) the park. Beautiful scenery and a lot of places are in walking distance. There is a part of the falls that you can wade/sit in the water and its very relaxing on a sunny day! Great to bring a picnic or eat at the restaurant there. Definitely go to... More

Minneapolis is a beautiful and unique city with so many sites to visit that it can be easy for a visitor to miss some. Minnehaha Park should be near the top of each visitor's list. Located a stone's throw from the Mississippi River, it offers a large peaceful park surrounding the lovely falls. (I find the falls to be most... More

Minnehaha Falls is a fascinating scene both winter and summer. In the winter you will see the ice build as the falls continues flowing. In the spring the water is in abundance and the falls are beautiful. Sometimes in a dry season the falls will slow to a trickle but there is always something to see and a food stand... More

This is esp impressive if there has been lots of recent rain, the falls rage then! It's a beautiful and popular park - food, live entertainment, beautiful landscaping and great hike to the river once the waters go down. It's a must-see IMO and a hop off the light rail line.

Beautiful waterfall, though it does get low at times if there hasn't been enough rain fall. Nice place to hike/walk, scenic and safe. Excellent restaurant nearby and can rent bicycles (that seat 1, 2, 4 or more!)

Its a great place for a run and had a lot of hiking trails and biking paths. We had some friends visiting us and this is one of the first places we took them. They really enjoyed their time.

We are first time travelers to the city of Minneapolis. Friends told us about the falls and to be honest I didn't think they'd be that nice, being in the middle of a major city. I was so wrong. The park is much bigger than I expected, the falls were grand, and the trail to the Mississippi was a beautiful... More
