We only visited the Falls and it was an enjoyable walk. With all the rains in the Spring, the falls was still running strong in late July and looks like it will maintain decent flow for another week! The best view of the Falls imo is after you pass the pavilion from the park lot on Godfrey parkway, take the... More

Went to See a 10000 year old falls. A public park. Which you have to pay to park. Not enough parking. Trash every where. Rude anxious people.

My family (age range 10-83) was in town. We went to Minnehaha Falls while they were here and it was rated by all as their top fun activity to do. Seeing the fall and walking along the rushing creek was truly enjoyable. Afterwards, we enjoyed beverages and snacks at the restaurant within easy distance of the falls!!

This was on my list when we arrived in the Minneapolis area and was glad to see it on my second day. The park itself is beautiful and there are informational signs telling you how the park system was designed for the city. Lots of bike riders, trollies, strollers, etc. The falls is a little walk and there are two... More

Due to the heavy rains this season, the Minnehaha Falls was raging. It was simply beautiful. The park is clean and safe. If we didn't have a toddler with us and more time, it would've been great to go for a hike along the river. There are bicycles (single person and trollies) to rent. There is a seafood restaurant in... More

I always have fun at this park. I look forward to going here whenever I'm in town and it never disappoints! Sunny and warm days are the best!

This is a beautiful park for couples, families, friends or solo. Anytime of the year is beautiful. The falls are something to see in full roaring glory, frozen over or slight trickle. The park is always clean and it conveys an atmosphere of safety if you're by yourself or with small children. There are food vendors and a food pavillion... More
