This is a nice area close to downtown Minneapolis; good for walks, taking your bike out or simply to find a place and had a cofffee and relax by people watching next to the Mississippi

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

The bridge is beautiful; a great place to spend a nice day outdoors! The ruins below it aren't too exciting, but still worth a trip below the bridge.

“Beautiful bridge, great views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Great views of the river, the locks, the I-35 bridge, the 3rd Avenue bridge, the Guthrie, Mill Ruins Park, and downtown. Minneapolis. Plus you can walk, run, or bike across it. I bike it a couple times a week in riding weather.

“Minneapolis trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Interesting and worth a short walk to visit because the weather was absolutely beautiful. It is in the Old Mill District which was all worth the experience.
