Rushing creek

The falls were in full flow. It is fun to walk along the powerful Minnehaha Creek below the falls and wade in at the pool below. Remember to bring a towel.

Took our young family on a perfect summer night. Pleased to find the falls were just a shirt walk. It was evening time, and lots of people, dogs, music, bicycles. It was fun to walk the trails and wade into the water.

"Minne"=small "haha"=laughter in Dakota, so it is the falls of small laughter, isn't that lovely!?! There is so much to see here, not just Pres. Johnson's footprints (look for them near the falls viewing area, stand where he stood)! Don't forget to find the Lock & Dam nearby!

We went to see the water fall which was ok but carried on for a walk along the river, this was very pleasant only comment on an improvement is sign posting and information is lacking we had to ask for directions, luckily we found some helpful locals we gave us a good overview of the places to go.

Lovely falls! They are so close and such a surprise in the city. Nice walking area, clean, water fountains. Many people climb over to the falls to get a closer look.

Relaxing, fun area in the summer and stunning "frozen" falls in the winter. Not many outdoor places in MN can be a good visit year-round!

A friend of the family brought us here on a recent pleasant Saturday afternoon. This is clearly a well-beloved park by locals and travelers alike. There’s plenty of space, lots to do, lots of picnic tables (in use). There’s food service, beer service (a mobile beer trailer with quite a few draft selections). With hiking trails and bike rentals on... More

A lovely little park in the city -there even is a place for children to splash in a shallow part of the creek. The only downside is that as an urban park, there is unfortunately litter marring the landscape.

My girlfriend and I visited the park on a weekend trip to Minneapolis. We both thought that it was very impressive considering how close it is to the city. Would definitely visit again!
