Minnewater is pretty and quiet. The buildings in the area are beautiful and quite unlike those in the rest of town. The advantage here is the shade and slightly smaller, more local crowds. Don't bother making a special trip for the swans: they are penned and smelly. Look for these beautiful creatures out on the canals early in the morning.
