Parking can be difficult but it is an amazing place to spend the day exploring. You will forget that you are even in the city.

Take a hike right on the middle of the city. Beautiful falls, nice hiking trails and see the Mississippi River. Good picnic area.

We visited here about five years ago. We loved it. Took beautiful pictures. Really enjoyed walking around. This visit we couldn't even get a parking place. Nearly had a fight with other park goers.

I visited Minnehaha park expecting to find a small waterfall and some trails, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much there is to do there. Endless trails, people swimming and playing in the water, a large, beautiful waterfall, and a great restaurant! I saw bike and other rentals as well along the path.

This is a true gem of Minneapolis! Amazing park that's absolutely huge. The falls are neat, but the area I liked was the river area after the falls. It's busy, and takes a while to walk around, bring some good walking shoes or a bike! If you walk down by the river, beware of the black quick sand like mud,... More

My spouse and I came to Minneapolis and wanted to experience one of their parks. Minnehaha did not disappoint. The falls are breathtaking and the trail that went along both sides of the creek until it met the Mississippi was very quiet, peaceful, and beautiful. We really enjoy more primitive trails and this park had many for us to explore.

An oasis for the nature lover as well as anyone looking for a respite from city life. We enjoyed the park, the water, the people watching and delicious sea food.

Beautiful scenery right in town, great walking paths and lots of things to see. Great Restaurant in park with brand new playground with splash pad for the littles. We frequent it often and even got engaged there:) Worth a visit!

Minnehaha Park is a beautiful piece of nature situated within the city. My wife and I took the Metro Blue Line (which dropped us off across the street from the park). We followed a well-maintained trail through grassy fields and tall trees and reached the Minnehaha Falls within ten minutes. I expected the Falls to be small, but they were... More
