the park is located on the route of the scenic byway, the waterfall is ok, you can take good picture there, and down the river, many people cool their feet in the water during summer time. There is family bike you can rent.

Was not expecting to find this little gem so close to the city. Was part of my quest to drive the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway. Loved the rushing falls and the gardens!

Loved the walking & hiking trails in this park! Waterfall is photo worthy. Parking is limited & you must pay for most of it. Visit the historical home on the park's edge.

Looking for a place to walk, have a picnic, see a waterfall, play some games, go down to the river...? Minnehaha Park has it all. It's so easy to spend countless hours here. If you have a bike there is even more to see here and the surrounding River Boulevard. A great way to spend a whole weekend day.

This is a beautiful park with a lot to see and great trails. The waterfalls are beautiful. Unfortunately some of the trails and bridges were under water at the time of our visit due to the recent heavy rains.

The park itself is beautiful. The falls are not very spectacular, but it's good to check it off your list of tourist spots if visiting the city. Not a lot of parking available.

Hard to believe this park is within the boundaries of a major metropolitan area. So beautiful. Easily accessible by light rail, and plenty of parking. The seafood restaurant (Sea Salt) in the park is well worth the wait. Great date night, but also great family outing. Stage nearby hosts some great concerts, too.
