in summer if you are in Minneapolis then do visit the Minnehaha Park for the walk and a look at the falls. Enjoy the walk with your family and friends.

If you live in this city, you have seen the "Falls" as we call it. Family's frequently have picnics in the pavilion. Access is so easy regardless of how you get there. If you drive there is a minimal fee for parking. Very peaceful atmosphere.

Relaxing. Place for weddings, hiking, biking, Surreys for rent. Miles of paths in the woods and along the parkway. A must when you come to Mpls. Right near the Hiawatha light rail system which goes downtown and airport and Mall of America.

Really family friendly, fun place to spend an afternoon. Falls are pretty impressive in the spring when the water level in Minnehaha Creek is high. Also kind of interesting to see a frozen waterfall in the winter.

Exhilerating water falls and serene nature in the middle of the south metro. Walking trails, picnic and play areas and a beautiful statue of Minnehaha and Hiawatha. A great place for a family afternoon.

A great place to bring a family or a date for couples. Lots of space for a picnic and a beautiful park with a stream and waterfall. Stairs down to a walk by the creek leading to the Mississippi River. More picnic areas below the falls as well. Restaurant with great food - sea food, chips, ice cream etc. Park... More

This park is a great place to visit &/or have a picnic. But, the falls here are beautiful to see. And, there's trails to walk on to see them.

I've lived here all my life and yet, when the water level is up this water fall never ceases to leave me feeling exhilarated. The walk at the base of the Falls takes you along a rapidly moving creek right out to the Mississippi River. Hungary? Great food and fish at the cafe. A perfect half day interlude.

Great falls to visit all year around. Hiking behind the falls in winter is also a great experience..

This is the most beautiful park within Minneapolis, and it feels like you are nowhere near an urban area. The people are all very relaxed, lots of places to stop and sit, and a fantastic ice cream place as well. I hear that the restaurant is excellent too. A very relaxing time with plenty of walking area too and exquisite... More
