Spring Trip to see Minnehaha Frozen Falls

We had a great day walking in the park, stopping to look at the frozen water fall and the beauty of the area.

I love going to Minnehaha Park to see the falls! Its a great way to spend a few hours on a nice afternoon. Plus, you can walk all the way down to the river, which is a nice nature-y walk!

Perfect for strolling, hiking, or just sitting if that's how you roll. The Falls and the surrounding grounds are truly amazing to see. People watching at it's best! Sea Salt (best eatery ever) is open seasonally (April - Oct) has great food, plenty of outdoor seating, a great craft beer and wine list, and Sebastian Joe's ice cream! On the... More

This place is very worth seeing and has a nice safe park around the falls and the falls themselves are very scenic and have some paved sidewalks, trails, and viewing spots to enjoy the falls and Minnehaha Creek. You enter at the top of the falls, so handicap access is good at the top of the falls, but many stairs... More

This is a unique chance to see a fantastic winter scene in the heart of a major city. A it will not cost you but a small parking fee.

It's a nice place to take a quiet stroll. Minnehaha Water Falls, and the creek, are very relaxing. A very calming place if you've had a bad day. Lots of places to walk, nice scenery, and a nice place to have a little picnic.

It was winter and the facilities were under construction, so a lot of sidewalks were closed off. But the falls were pretty. It's a bit eerie though, the setting almost seemed like a zoo- you're walking along in a nice level park, then you come to a rail enclosing a waterfall and outflow.

Beautiful waterfalls we followed the path along the stream to a wonderful swimming hole. There were a good many steps to get down to the main path but there were benches along the way. Great outdoor activity. Nice pavillion with food served. Picnic benches for those that choose not to hike the path and stay up in the park. Charge... More
