“Nice park!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

On a recent business trip, I had a little time to explore and found this beautiful park. The waterfall is the main attraction, and it makes for a perfect Kodak moment. Highly recommended.

“Beautiful park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Minnehaha Park is great any time of the year! We enjoy having family pictures here. The falls are gorgeous during the summer and frozen in the winter. I must see for a day outside.

“Indian Welcoming on American Nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

Very nice place with the characteristic Minnehaha Falls. The food is delicious and tasty especially the fish dish. One could also enjoy biking after this heavy meal.

“Great for walking, cycling and jogging”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

It's a popular park and often it is frequented by people living near by, cyclists and runners. Generally the area it runs through is nice so it's fairly safe too, although I wouldn't be walking there late at night. It's particularly attractive if one is cycling around the Twin Cities since it has nice and wide paths both for pedestrians and cyclists. It connects the Lakes and Uptown area with Hiawatta park.

“Hidden gem in the city!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

I've been to Minneapolis-St. Paul numerous times but just visited this place for the first time in October. What a beautiful park and waterfall! It was a cold day, but we enjoyed a walk through the park and a great view of the waterfall. The steps to the bottom of the falls were roped off but all kinds of people were crossing over them to get a better view. It's worth a stop if you've got the time.
