We went here 4th of July weekend and with the reasons range falls were incredible.the adjoining park was green, beautiful, and an excellent way to spend an hour or two.parking was a challenge but we found something on a nearby street. Highly recommend and will visit again. Very nice play ground for the under 8 crowd.

We had a blast in this park. The falls were gorgeous; some locals said they aren't always the same from week to week so we were lucky they were so pretty. The park is also very pretty. We rented a surrey bicycle and toured the park and it was great fun. We pedaled out to the dam area which was... More

Because of all the recent rain, the fall was flowing big time! I really didn't expect to see something like that right in the middle of this lovely park. You can walk down either side of the Minnehaha Creek until it meets up with the Mississippi River. The pathways are rough and because of the rains there was a fair... More

Loved the short time spent at this lovely park. Falls were quite impressive. Bathrooms, food, barbecue areas and benches were readily available. Great place just to stroll around. There are many trails to hike around the falls..

Heavily used by locals, this lovely urban park stretches along the river and includes an impressive Minehaha Falls. Small by the standards of my home in Oregon, but aggressive river flows make it a nice scene.

We spent an all too brief two hours at this park! The waterfall was beautiful and we enjoyed walking the lower trails along the river. We saw a few White Heron's along the trail. They also have bikes and Surrey's for rent! The upper paved trails are really nice and go the whole length of the park on both sides... More

This park was a wonderful place to go for a lovely afternoon. We rented the double bikes for a ride around the park & it was great.

That title is a big of an exaggeration, but a trip to Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis is a must for locals and tourists alike. In the center of this beautiful park setting amongst throngs of people enjoying activities and the great outdoor lies the falls, a beautiful rushing, roaring, tumbling water dances and flashes in the sunlight before your eyes...

This park, right at the edge of the city limits, is a great quick stop to or from the airport. There is a way people with disabilities can get to and from the lower falls - a semi-secret back field is there; you will need to turn off on 46th and trace the road past the roundabout to find it....

This park seems to go on for an eternity. It's very beautiful. I got lost and ended up at the Mississippi Lock and Damn. You can take a walk around it. Very beautiful. I can't wait to return and see the falls and try the restaurant. You can also rent bikes!
