This is a free place to visit (unless you want to park nearby which will cost you something). It is a nice place to walk. There are gardens and grass areas walk thru or sit and look at. The falls are pretty most of the year. The most water is typically in the spring after the snow melt. The entire... More

Minnehaha Park is home to Minnehaha Falls, one of the great natural sights in Minneapolis. The falls can be viewed from the top (this is easily accessible), or from below if you take the stairs down. Once you've had your fill of the falls, you can take the trail along Minnehaha Creek to the river. The falls are beautiful any... More

A great place, free place to check out in both the summer and the winter!!! Lots of walking paths, open spaces, a near by dog park and cheap close pay parking. The falls are amazing to look at anytime of year. Lots of benches/places to sit and take it in. During the summer you can rent bikes, etc and there... More

Need to talk a walk or explore the outdoor, there is nothing like a walk down the hiking path to the river and the attraction of the beautiful falls. The frozen falls are so pretty but in spring the beauty surronding the area is breathtaking

This is a beautiful park that is filled with fun activities for all ages. We enjoyed renting pedal pikes for four people and taking a ride through the park. We ended up at a small water park, which was free, and allowed the kids to cool off under the sprinklers! The falls are amazing and provide a nice background for... More

We always bring out of town guests here since there is so much to see and do... from the bike trails (and bike rentals), to the expansive green areas, the Minnehaha falls and trails to hike around the falls, or just a quiet picnic alongside the river. The falls are even a wonder during the cold months, perhaps more so.... More

It was a beautiful sight to see all the ice and icicles around Minnehaha Falls. There were many people walking around the base of the falls despite the entrances being roped off. I enjoyed walking around the park despite the cold weather.

Minnehaha Park is a paradise for our four legged friends. Plenty of green space to run in the summer and tons of snow to plow through in the winter. There is a section that is off leash where many people enjoy all times of the year. Most traffic is on weekends especially in the summer. The regulars walk year round... More
